Children’s Miracle Network – Meet the Staff: Vanessa and Ebony, School-Based Health Centers
For many kids, the staff at the School-Based Health Centers are just like parents. That's exactly the case for Ebony and Vanessa.
School Based Health isn’t just an on campus clinic. Our nurses are helping to break the bad cycles and build lifelong relationships. Ebony will tell you that she looks at Vanessa as a mom.
Ebony’s “cycle” was going to take her down a path that could have included drugs and alcohol. The School Based Health Center helped Ebony through some tough times and is breaking the negative cycle.
She is now a member of the Woodlawn JROTC and is looking at college options.
When you become a Miracle Maker, your $12 a month goes toward programs like the School-Based Health Centers in Shreveport-Bossier.
“Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has raised more than $5 billion—most of it $1 at a time—for 170 children’s hospitals across the United States and Canada, which, in turn, use the money where it’s needed the most. These donations have gone to support research and training, purchase equipment, and pay for uncompensated care, all to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.
Our mission: We increase funds and awareness for local children’s hospitals.
Our vision: Together we save kids’ lives.
Right now there’s a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital working to save the lives of kids in your community. In fact, 62 children enter a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital for treatment every minute — that’s one child every second. Some are battling cancer. Some are suffering from a traumatic injury. Others require constant care because they were born too early, or with a genetic disease. Regardless of why the kids are there, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals always have their doors open.”
