Angels In Action
Please join us in supporting the Spiritual Care Department and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles with your generous donation to our Annual Giving Campaign, Angels in Action.
Hospital chaplains do not bill for their time, and on a daily basis, they provide a listening ear and emotional support to our young patients and their families. They provide a presence when a family has just heard bad news or received a diagnosis. They stay with a family at the end of life and help them sort through difficult medical and ethical decisions.
Sometimes, chaplains come in the middle of the night to be with a family in crisis. Visits can be short, and at other times, chaplains can be with families for quite a long time. They are able to provide conversations, prayer, blessings, communion and baptism ceremonies, sacred literature, Shabbat candles, kosher refridgerators, and Islamic prayer rugs; meeting a wide range of interfaith needs. On average, a chaplain visits with about 10-12 families a day, approximately 4,000 families a year.
