Youth Hope Association - Providing quality of life programs for pediatric hospital patients in Houston.
Founded by seven Houstonians in 2012, Youth Hope Association (YHA) provides pediatric patients and their families in the Houston area an improved quality of life through hosting interactive and themed based events at Texas Children’s Hospital and Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital.
Youth Hope Association understands that a pediatric medical event not only impacts a child undergoing treatment but the entire family. By hosting interactive, theme based parties, YHA’s goal is to provide families with hope, laughter and time together. We believe that if we can help take patients’ minds off of their medical condition, if only for the short time our volunteers are with them, then we are making a difference. The planned activities cater to children but are enjoyed by all ages.
