As of June 2015, we have formed a partnership with Children’s Disaster Services (CDS) for national and local deployments. They are an organization with 35+ years of experience working with the American Red Cross and FEMA to provide specialized child-centered play opportunities to children in the immediate aftermath of a natural or man-made disaster. They have been providing intensive trainings since 1980. With this partnership, child life specialists will be able to participate in smaller-scale local events as well as larger-scale national disasters by providing child-centered play opportunities with Children’s Disaster Services.
