The Central Massachusetts Respite Project (CMRP) is an internship opportunity for college students who will be educated in nonprofit human services management practices; family support needs and perspectives; and gain direct care worker experience. It is a collaboration of Seven Hills Foundation, the Central Massachusetts Partnership for Children and Youth with Special Health Needs, Quinsigamond Community College, Becker College. CMRP has been funded through generous grants from the Health Foundation of Central Massachusetts, The Stoddard Charitable Trust, and Boston Scientific. Seven Hills Pediatric Center is a Pediatric Skilled Nursing Community that provides long-term, continuous skilled nursing care; short-term respite care; and short-term post hospitalization to children and young adults from infancy to age 22, who are profoundly developmentally delayed and have complex medical needs, or who are in need of transitional care after an extended hospitalization. Under the auspices of the Pediatric Medical Director, children receive all the necessary medical, nursing, therapy, and leisure services possible to enhance their quality of life.
