At A Children's House for the Soul, our educational initiatives, encouraging events, and emotional support projects are developed in partnership with our Certified Child Life Specialist, Lindsay. In addition to program development, Lindsay meets with families individually to provide coping support and introduces kids and teens who have similar skin experiences in a safe and encouraging environment.
