Crescent Cove Receives $2,500 Gift from Karsyn’s Krusaders
Support for care and services needed by children facing shortened life expectancy
Minneapolis (April 22, 2016) – Crescent Cove, a non-profit whose mission is to support children who face a shortened life expectancy and their families, today announced a $2,500 gift from Karsyn’s Krusaders.
The gift will help Crescent Cove provide special therapeutic services needed by families facing one of life’s most difficult journeys, even as the non-profit raises funds to build the Midwest’s first residential hospice and respite center specifically for young people.
Currently, none of Minnesota’s 82 licensed or certified hospice programs specialize in pediatric hospice care. Each year thousands of children and their families lack the specialized physical, spiritual and emotional services that can be of benefit at end-of-life.
“Therapeutic services are some of the most important components of end-of-life care,” said Katie, founder of Crescent Cove. “The gift from Karsyn’s Krusaders will help us to provide these services for families and to meet the needs that they have right now at this very moment.”
The gift from Karsyn’s Krusaders will enable Crescent Cove to help families cover the costs of such services as massage therapy, healing touch, reflexology, music therapy, spiritual care and creative arts, as well as respite time at retreat centers with other families facing similar challenges.
