Kurn Hattin Homes was awarded a $4,000 grant from Entergy Foundation to help support the Healthy Children Program, a program which funds the children's medical and dental expenses not covered by insurance.
Kurn Hattin provides all routine and necessary medical treatments for children regardless of the children's insurance coverage status. It's a large and growing burden on the Homes' budget every year.
Kurn Hattin's Family Outreach Department works with families to obtain and remain insured but sometimes the policies lapse, or the families are ineligible or have lost their jobs. Besides Vermont children, youngsters from neighboring states often don't have coverage that crosses state lines.
"We thank the Entergy Foundation for partnering with us in providing the best of care for the children in our community. Kurn Hattin Homes is a residential, year-round, charitable home and school for in-need and at-risk children, ages 6-15, from throughout the Northeast," said Chris Barry of Kurn Hattin.
