The Courage Lion Program was developed in cooperation with the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center to help children and adolescents discover their inner strength for coping with a variety of crises. The program provides therapeutic solutions to propel a journey of healing through bolstering courage, facilitating communication and engendering hope. Since the launch in 2006, the program has experienced extraordinary success and growth to over 136 hospitals, military organizations, hospices and other outreach efforts, impacting the lives of 46,000 children, adolescents and their families.
