What is VHA Playdate?

VHA Playdate is a unique program that lets kids with complex medical needs come together to socialize, play and have a blast with other kids. It also gives parents – who have little to no time to themselves usually – a chance to take a well-deserved break.

Donate to VHA Playdate

VHA Playdate has been an overwhelming success, with a handful of sessions bringing great memories and welcomed respite to families of children with complex medical needs. However, we still haven’t secured long-term funding to keep this important initiative going regularly.

While we look for opportunities for continued support, we need your help! Any amount you can give – no matter how big or small – is much appreciated! We promise good karma will be returned to you 10-fold!

Your money will help to provide:

  • Staff to help the kids play, ensure their safety and to give parents peace of mind (each child has support from one PSW, an Occupational Therapist leads activities and three nurses are on hand in case of a medical event)
  • Rental of a fully accessible space to play in
  • Specialists in music therapy, art activities and other special guests
  • Art and music supplies
