The BREATHE staff includes highly trained individuals who provide a fun and safe environment for our participants.  The goal is that every parent or caretaker feels confident leaving their loved one in a safe, fun and exciting environment.

The BREATHE staff includes 2 Registered Nurses who are on staff to handle all medical needs such as G-Tube feedings, medication distribution, toileting, and any other medical needs.  

BREATHE also has an Adaptive Physical Education (PE) Teacher who provides exciting and fun physical activities to get participants moving.  Additionally, we have a Music Therapist who engages participants through music.  Finally, we have a large staff of loving and caring volunteers of all ages.
