Partners in EducationPosted Sep. 12 2012
In an effort to address the continuing school budget crisis in the area, Dr. Idiculla and his team launched a “Partners in Education” (PIE) program in 2009 to become a part of the solution. For every new child patient that begins treatment with us $50 is being donated directly to their school.
In conjunction with our PIE program, the team established the 50-50 program for 2012. For every patient that begins treatment with us an additional $50 will be donated to a local charity called Judi’s House. Judi’s House was founded by Brian Griese in memory of his mother who died when he was twelve years old. This cause hits close to home for Dr. I, as he too lost a significant person at a young age: his father.
The vision of Judi’s House is a community in which no child has to feel alone in grief. Their mission is to help children and families who are grieving the death of a loved one find hope and healing within themselves. At Judi’s House, an environment of acceptance and understanding allows children and adults in peer support groups to share the experience of loss with others. Judi’s House increases awareness and knowledge of grieving children’s needs by extending grief support services to schools, faith-based groups, hospices, and other caregivers in the community.
