2017 marked the 10 Year Anniversary of Charna’s Kids Club! We could not be more proud and grateful to all those who have made Charna’s dream possible. Because of your commitment and support, the Charna Radbell Foundation has been able to help thousands of patients and their entire families throughout the world.
Cohen Children’s Medical Center of New York welcomes Charna’s Kids Club to our home.
Charna’s Kids Club has been the perfect addition to Cohens, providing a safe place for siblings of hospitalized children. Charna’s Kids Club helps these children feel valued and assists them with any coping challenges they may face. As the Program Coordinator and as an Art Therapist, I have witnessed the emotional issues with which "Charna’s Kids" struggle. So, we are very pleased that we have been able to offer this excellent sibling support program, four days a week, to our sibling patient population of 300,000. Thank you, Arlene and Larry Radbell!
Alice Bergmann, LCSW, is our award-winning Program Coordinator at Charna’s Kids Club. Her leadership and expertise have previously been acknowledged by her peers at the MSCH. This year, she is the recipient of the highly acclaimed Social Worker of the Year Award. Once again, we are so very proud of Alice!
