The Harris County Hospital District Foundation assisted our inpatient rehabilitation department by taking a once vacant outdoor space and transformed it into a beautiful horticultural therapy garden. The grant helped our department in purchasing the much needed therapeutic gardening equipment, shading for the garden, as well as for ongoing projects and seasonal plantings. The garden provides an outside location for patients to engage in a therapeutic activity, while incorporating all the same goals of increasing activity tolerance, standing tolerance, cognition, range of motion etc. normally addressed within the confines of a traditional gym or inpatient setting. The inpatient rehabilitation department at Quentin Mease Community Hospital is extremely grateful to the Harris County Hospital District Foundation for all their hard work and dedication in making our dreams a wonderful reality.
Amy Parker, CTRS –Recreation Therapist.

The Harris County Hospital District Foundation fosters innovation by supporting pilot programs within the Harris Health System such as the creation of the Horticultural Therapy Program at the Quentin Mease Community Hospital (https://www.harrishealth.org/en/news/pages/horticultural-therapy-garden.aspx) and the award-winning Healthy Harvest initiative( http://www.newswise.com/articles/harris-county-hospital-district-wins-prestigious-naph-award). Additionally, the foundation builds public-private partnerships on behalf of low-income, uninsured children. Just in the last 10 years, the Foundation has given more than $2.5 million to various children’s health projects in Harris County.

The Harris Health Foundation has been instrumental in changing lives - I work at the Neuro Psychiatric Center, Ben Taub Hospital, Occupational Therapy Department, and because the Foundation funded the Work Reintegration Program, to date, we have clients who are now gainfully employed, productive members of society. The Foundation has also funded and continues to fund other projects like the Self Care Group and the Cooking Group, which allows our clients to practice good hygiene and healthy eating / healthy meal preparation on a daily basis. Words are not enough to describe the impact that these projects have had on the lives of our clients. More Power to the Foundation and Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! Michelle F. Phillips, OTR
