Camp for Grieving Children
Loss of a close family member is devastating to a child without the maturity or professional guidance to process their grief. Camp Cocoon is a special camp exclusively for kids who are struggling with grief. Camp Cocoon provides professional counseling, an understanding community, and practical tools to help children process their grief and find hope for the future.
“Camp Cocoon was a life changing experience for my 2 boys who were 11 and 5 when their baby sister passed away shortly after her birth. The first year at camp they were really able to connect with other kids who were grieving and developed trusting relationships with their bereavement counselors and house parents. When they found out many of the friends they met would be returning the next year, they couldn’t wait to go back…”
Family Outreach Crisis Grants
“Recently, I had a [friend] miss numerous days from work due to her husband being sick and in and out of the hospital. She exhausted her PTO and when the utility bills became delinquent I suggested we contact the PruittCares Foundation to see if they could aid her in any way. Success!!!! PruittCares helped [my friend] get her utilities caught up. She is very thankful for PruittCares and the assistance given when needed.”
Healthcare Education Scholarships
“I would have to say that furthering my education has been the best thing that could have happened to me. I started out as an LPN in 2006. After working in a hospital for 3 years, I came to hospice. It was not until I had my eyes set upon the DHS job that I decided to try to get my RN. However, I had a lot of obstacles in my way. It took me awhile to get things lined up, but finally with the help of the PruittCares scholarship, I was able to go back to school and obtain my RN.”
