Entergy Foundation Supports Healthy Children
November 30, 2012 | Westminster, VT – Kurn Hattin Homes was awarded a $2,500 grant from Entergy Foundation to help support the Healthy Children Program, a program which funds the children’s medical and dental expenses not covered by insurance. Kurn Hattin provides all routine and necessary medical treatments for children regardless of the children’s insurance coverage status. It’s a large and growing burden on the Homes’ budget every year.
Kurn Hattin’s Family Outreach Department works with families to obtain and remain insured but sometimes the policies lapse, or the families are ineligible or have lost their jobs. Besides the Vermont children, children from neighboring states often don’t have coverage that crosses state lines.
We thank the Entergy Foundation for partnering with us in providing the best of care for the children in our community. Established in 1894, Kurn Hattin Homes in Westminster, Vermont is a charitable home and school for children, ages 6-15, who are affected by tragedy, social or economic hardship, or other disruption in family life. Its mission: Kurn Hattin transforms the lives of children and their families forever. www.kurnhattin.org.
