Community Outreach


The Hospital Education Program (HEP) enjoys a strong relationship with the local community.  The HEP also believes that opportunities for learning should extend beyond hospital walls.  To foster this belief, the HEP sponsors both Reach Out and Read and Well Bear Clinic .  The success of these programs is enhanced by community and University volunteers.  Those interested in volunteering at the University of Virginia Children's Hospital should contact the Office of Volunteer Services at (434) 924-5251.

All HEP services are provided free to children and their families.  For additional information, contact (434) 924-2658.
