In 2016, Yoga Reaches Out donated over $1M dollars to the Hale Family Center at Boston Children’s Hospital. The Hale Center serves as a resource and, often times, a sanctuary for parents and family of children being treated at the hospital.
From before patient families arrive to after they go home, the Hale Center for Families is available to answer questions, provide resources and help guide families during their time at the hospital. – Boston Children’s Hospital Hale Center for Families
“Just to have this center here as kind of an oasis for us has been really helpful to make medical decisions and just alleviate the stress that comes with caring for a sick child,” – Diane Cella, BCH
YRO’s contribution helps to expand the Hale Center’s Wellness Program with the addition of the Yoga Reaches Out wellness room which provides programs like massage, yoga, reiki and meditation to help family members relieve stress, and sometimes, to help cope.
Yoga Reaches Out is grateful for all of the love and support of the yoga community, who comes together to create “seva” selfless service that changes lives. When we work hard and love one another, amazing things can happen!
