Spirit of Children

What is Spirit of Children?

Spirit of Children is a program that has been making hospitals less scary for children and their families since 2006 by providing funding to Child Life Departments. It started with Halloween parties at 11 hospitals in 2006, and has grown into providing funding for 140 Child Life Departments across the United States and Canada.

How Do I Participate?

Now throughout October 31st, all Spirit Halloween stores conduct in-store fundraising. Simply make a purchase and request that your donation go to UnityPoint Health. 100% of the donations made at the local stores (listed below), will go to the Child Life Program at UnityPoint Health.

What is Child Life at UnityPoint Health?

The Child Life Program at UnityPoint Health provides care to children who are hospitalized on the inpatient pediatric unit, undergoing outpatient procedures, or seeking treatment in our emergency department. Additionally, the Child Life Team provides support to children of adult patients in the CVICU, ICU, and L&D when a family member is seriously ill or dying. These services help young patients and their families cope with the trauma and stress of a hospital visit in an effort to reduce anxiety and improve overall health outcomes.


Impact of Spirit of Children

Over the past three years, the Spirit of Children partnership has enabled our Child Life Program to  expand services and provide care to more patients and families throughout the UnityPoint Health - Central Illinois region. This includes increased hours and expanded coverage allowing our Child Life team to triple the amount of pediatric patients seen from 2019.

"Working in the Emergency Department at Methodist has allowed me to serve our most vulnerable pediatric patients facing crisis. I have the unique role of being a safe, calm person that meets the needs of the diverse population seen in our department," says Brittany Driscoll, BS, CCLS. Support the 2021 Spirit of Children program to help fund this important role in our Emergency Department.
