The Austin Hatcher Foundation supports research to help find a cure for pediatric cancer. They are also the foundation behind Hatch’s House of Hope, a center dedicated to helping families that have been diagnosed with pediatric cancer find resources, skills and hope.
Staff and volunteers at Hatch’s House of Hope recently completed training in a program designed to help families discover and apply their own strengths to solve issues and make decisions. Problem Solving Skills Training is a technique that guides the mother through a series of steps that will help them define problems, identify resources, plan strategies and implement decisions.
Hatch’s House of Hope offers this and many other services designed to serve the parents, siblings and child that is diagnosed with cancer. Chattanooga is home to the first Hatch’s House of Hope and the Austin Hatcher Foundation is working toward opening other centers across the nation.
