Children’s Miracle Network – Meet the Staff: Yolanda Green, Safe Sitter
Educating young adults on how to care for their younger siblings, can take a lot of strain off of working parents.
The health center teams are trained to provide the nationally recognized babysitting course, Safe Sitter, to youth between the ages of 11-14. This program is not designed to create babysitters but give the needed knowledge to siblings who need to watch other siblings due to parent work schedules.
There is no limit to what you $12-a-month donation can go toward. Become a Miracle Maker today and ensure that programs like Safe Sitter continue for many years to come.
“Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has raised more than $5 billion—most of it $1 at a time—for 170 children’s hospitals across the United States and Canada, which, in turn, use the money where it’s needed the most. These donations have gone to support research and training, purchase equipment, and pay for uncompensated care, all to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.
Our mission: We increase funds and awareness for local children’s hospitals.
Our vision: Together we save kids’ lives.
Right now there’s a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital working to save the lives of kids in your community. In fact, 62 children enter a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital for treatment every minute — that’s one child every second. Some are battling cancer. Some are suffering from a traumatic injury. Others require constant care because they were born too early, or with a genetic disease. Regardless of why the kids are there, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals always have their doors open.”
