For Arizona families caring for children with life‐threatening conditions, every moment, touch and smile count. Quality time, a must for sustaining energy and hope, is nearly impossible for most families to find on their own. Respite – short breaks from the continuous strain of round-the-clock care – is essential for families to remain intact, and for children to experience quality of life. That’s what Ryan House is all about.
Nowhere else in the Southwest can these particular kids just be kids, because Ryan House is built for them. Eight colorfully-themed bedrooms function as gateways to adaptive music, art, computer, sensory, hydrotherapy and family fun rooms, along with a fully accessible playground and relaxing garden space outdoors.
Thank You For Making Our Fifth Annual Ryan House Community Breakfast a Success!
Thank you to everyone who attended the Fifth Annual Community Breakfast on May 10, 2013! Your belief in the mission of Ryan House allows the children and families we serve to have access to respite, palliative and, as needed, end-of-life care. With more than 500 guests in attendance, we were able to raise the much-needed funds to help us meet the needs of these precious families who are in desperate need of a break, a friend and a support system.
