Partners That Heal, A W.O.N.D.E.R. Project

Our specially trained Partners That Heal, A W.O.N.D.E.R. Project artists use improvisation, puppetry and music to comfort children and adults in healthcare and crisis facilities. Participating facilities report improved communication between patients and caregivers directly following a visit. On more than one occasion, a visit from the Partners That Heal team has been the last wish of a dying child.

Partners That Heal serves thousands of children and adults every year through primary partnerships with Phoenix Children's Hospital, St. Vincent De Paul and District Medical Group Children's Rehabilitative Services Clinic. We have also provided services to Children's Cancer Network's Cancer Survivorship Camp, Camp Rainbow, The Southwest Center for HIV/AID’s Camp Incredible, Ryan House, Carden's Children's Medical Center, Florence Crittenton, Arizona Burn Center and Banner Thunderbird Children's Center.

AZ Lifestyle featured the program in their September issue. Read it HERE.

  • Strengthens the human connection by bringing people together as members of one community  
  • Improves the quality of life for children, adults, and families in long-term care
  • Alleviates fear and provides normalcy, through entertainment and consistent visitation
