Treehouse Children’s Services

Cancer Family Care is proud to be meeting a need throughout Greater Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky for accessible and beneficial mental health counseling and supportive services that help children, adults, and families cope with and manage a cancer diagnosis and its overwhelming impact in their lives.  A grant supported Treehouse Children's Services, a free year-round program that meets the unique and complex needs of children ages 4-18 who are coping with cancer.  Treehouse provides private one-on-one counseling sessions, school-based counseling sessions (one-on-one and/or group sessions with peers), and supplemental programs like Walking the Dinosaur (facilitating improved communication in families where a parent has a current cancer diagnosis) and Camp Courage Youth Day Camp (providing a fun-focused, peer bonding summer camp experience).  Treehouse is critical because when cancer strikes children can feel engulfed by complex emotions and feelings which can negatively impact school performance, family and peer relationships, sleep patterns, self-esteem, and more.  Treehouse participants report an increased ability to cope in their daily lives, decreased nightmares, improved performance at school, and positive feelings of being supported.  Treehouse serves 500 children annually while also benefitting parents who feel enormous relief for having found specialized mental health support for their child/children during a time of such emotional trauma and upheaval.
