Thanks to the generous support of the Carolan Foundation, Siskin Children's Institute recently completed renovations to create a unique pediatric therapy space for children in the Siskin Center for Developmental Pediatrics.

The $50,000 grant provided for specialized equipment. The space incorporates modular walls that allow the space to be reconfigured easily, which will allow the institute to serve children better as they grow into their teens. The space also features a climbing wall with adapted hand-holds and foot ledges to help children build muscles and encourage movement. In addition, the grant will provide funds to incorporate technology upgrades and additional furnishings to complete this much-needed renovation.

"Thank you to the Carolan Foundation for seeing our vision for this newly renovated space," says Linda McReynolds, director of development and communication at Siskin Children's Institute.
