The RUAH program connects individuals in the community with needed services including primary health care and preventative health services. St. Vincent Anderson Regional employs a Health Access Worker who connects uninsured/underserved individuals and families to primary and preventative care as well as to other needed community services.
Children and teenagers, from ages 5 to 17, who have experienced the death of loved-ones deserve special support as they grieve. St. Vincent Hospice recognizes the special needs of grieving children and has established Camp Hope to meet those needs. There is no charge to attend Camp Hope. St. Vincent Anderson Regional is sponsoring the camp with generous support from the St. Vincent Anderson Regional Foundation. The camp provides an opportunity to share feelings of loss with other children and caring adults, and to learn that these feelings are normal.
The camp environment stresses fun and enjoyment, with the opportunity for brief, informal group discussions led by trained facilitators. Children may enjoy swimming, nature walks, arts and crafts, games, campfires and other fun activities.
The experience is not designed as therapy, but as an enjoyable way to gently teach coping skills and build self-esteem and trust.
To learn about the many volunteer opportunities with Camp Hope or to register a youth to be a camper, contact Patty Farran or Margie Vandergraff at 765-203-2616.
The 2016 camp will be Aug. 6-7.

Many families establish medical homes as a result of bringing their kindergarten-aged child to this event.
St. Vincent Anderson Regional in conjunction with the local Salvation Army conducts a program called Tools for Schools that provides underprivileged elementary age children with backpacks and school supplies to start the school year.
