My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Children and Arthritis, Shreveport, LA, USA
I am a volunteer that has been a part of this wonderful nonprofit for over 20 years! Children and Arthritis provides a camp for children with arthritis and rheumatic diseases. The camp helps families learn to cope with their child's illness as well as realize there are many other families in the same situation. How awesome to not feel so isolated in the midst of a difficult disease and diagnosis, for the child afflicted as well as the parent!
There are numerous doctors, family counselors and therapists that volunteer to be at camp in a relaxed atmosphere and answer questions to help the families/kids learn more about their diagnosis. Lots of fun events and activities go on during the 3 day camp each summer. Families travel from all over to be a part of the fun in Shreveport, LA!
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I wish more folks could know about this organization and recognize the value in supporting both the nonprofit Children and Arthritis and Camp Jambalaya Jubilee!
