Brightening Medical Experiences for Inpatients and Outpatients
Project Sunshine is a global network of volunteers that provide play and activities to help children cope while facing medical challenges. Project Sunshine supports the work of child life specialists and other medical professionals in their work of providing psychological, social and emotional support to pediatric patients and families. We design and facilitate developmentally appropriate and adaptive programming in a range of settings within the hospital and outpatient medical facilities.
Project Sunshine offers three types of programs to patients and their families within our network of hospitals and medical facility partners.
Here To Play
Here To Play brings brings patients and volunteers together in hospital settings through creative arts activities and other opportunities for social interaction and learning.
Project Sunshine’s TelePlay program is a live play experience, using a HIPAA compliant technology platform.
Kits for Play
Our activity kits deliver safe, creative play directly to children. The kits are packed by tens of thousands of our volunteers, then distributed to medical facilities all around the US and Canada.
