This year, Ashland Community Hospital Foundation is asking our community to join us and invest in the Help Our Kids Thrive campaign. This initiative will support the Ashland and Phoenix-Talent School Districts’ summer programs including the expansion of the School Nurse Program and other new initiatives to help children overcome the disruption in learning and the trauma of loss.
The School Nurse Program will expand over the summer so nurses can be available for students still traumatized by the pandemic and the fire.
Phoenix-Talent teachers will receive special training to better meet students’ social-emotional needs, in addition to their academic needs.
An art therapy program will help Phoenix-Talent students process their trauma from the fire by creating sculpture and signage for the Greenway.
Ashland students will get a learning boost through interactive educational videos and personal outdoor science kits they can take home for continued learning.
Through your generosity over the years, we have been able to improve the lives of our friends, neighbors and families in many ways.
