ARVF works on a national level to bring hope, comfort, and happiness to hospitalized teens. To do this ARVF provides the Victorious-4-Teens Programs:
Teen Kits are a unique amenity provided to any adolescent (ages 13 & up) who is hospitalized for any critical & life-threatening condition. The cinch bags are filled with over 12 items to entertain their in-patient stay. The kit also includes a comfortable and fun Bandana Pillow for their bed and for them to take home as well.
ARVF funds Teen Lounges in children’s hospitals designed to enhance the quality of life for adolescents undergoing in-patient treatment. A Teen Lounge is a special place designed to help patients take a welcome break from their treatment and a way to meet others their age. Teen Lounges include board games, computers, big screen TV’s, pool tables, gaming systems, age-appropriate furnishings and much more.
ARVF funds special social events such as: Bingo Nights, Teen Proms, Pizza Parties and other creative in-hospital activities for teens. These activities help encourage patients to escape the isolation of their patient rooms and gives hospitalized adolescents the ability to socialize with other teen patients that are dealing with the same struggles.
