Stepping Stones of Hope – A Resource for MedFlight911 Families
On an everyday basis at MedFlight911, we work with families who need medical transport. Whether it be medical transport via air ambulance, medical motor coach, or with the assistance of an air medical escort, the one constant is that we are dealing with families who are in crisis. Families who need assistance transporting loved ones. Families who are researching long term care options or arranging hospice care for their loved. Families who may be facing end of life decisions. Families whose lives changed suddenly. So, while there is laughter, joy and smiles on a daily basis at work, we also deal with a great deal of grief. As a result, we were so fortunate to find a local charity as a resource for our families. For the past 6 years, we have been lucky to work with Stepping Stones of Hope.
Stepping Stones of Hope offers supportive services to grieving families and children. This support comes in the form of multiple programs that use art, music, role-playing and other age-appropriate activities to help children come to terms with their grief.
This weekend, Stepping Stones of Hope will be hosting their Camp Paz. Camp Paz is an overnight, weekend camp for grieving children ages 6-18 and their families. Stepping Stones of Hope works tirelessly to create a neutral and safe environment that fosters both friendships and profound healing. In addition to Camp Paz, Stepping Stones also provides camps specifically for families, for children ages 6-17, teen camps for ages 13-18 and camps for adults. They also provide supportive resources on grief for primary and secondary educational institutions, hospitals, and first responder agencies.
At MedFlight911, we work with families every day who are dealing with illness, sometimes acute, sometimes chronic or even fatal. Some of the families we deal with are not facing a happy ending at the conclusion of their journey. However, it lightens our hearts and our loads to know that charities, like Stepping Stones of Hope, exist to help these families.
