Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide a nurturing and creative environment for children through artistic expression to promote healing and nurture the human spirit. The Portable Playhouse Incorporated was created to provide a fun environment for children in a hospital setting by embracing their natural creativity through various arts and crafts projects in hope to boost their spirits and help speed up their recovery. We recognize that a stay in a hospital can be stressful on the entire family. The children and their families can take the focus off their surroundings for a short time and have their spirits rejuvenated. Our unique program allows us to attend to children at their bedside, giving them one-on-on attention. Our program is tailored for children of all ages, in all stages of recovery. Our primary focus is on the childrenâ  s creativity and not their illness. The Portable Playhouse uses many different projects to enhance the childrenâ  s creativity, stimulate growth and rejuvenate their spirits. We use mediums such as bead and string jewelry making, puzzle designs, life size paper portraits, and colorful mobiles.

Description

The Portable Playhouse volunteers work with the children in creating various art projects. The Portable Playhouse organization works very closely with hospital child life specials, volunteer departments, and nurses to ensure that we can reach as many children as possible. We bring the art supplies into the hospitals and work closely with the children at no cost to the hospital.
