The community I am helping are children from infancy to 21 years old. These children are medically fragile and live permanently in the center where they go to Portland Public Schools and do a variety of other activities in and outside of the Center. They are just like any other kid their age who love to have fun, laugh, dance, play and be read to. These children spend the majority of the time inside the Center, which is their home. They barely have knowledge of the outside world between the rare field trips they take to OMSI or the movies and school. Volunteers are greatly needed to interact with these kids, because they are around the same nurses everyday, all the time and it is refreshing to them to see new faces, make new friends, and spend time away from medicine and machines that keep them going.
