“Healing Words” is an innovative program designed to help improve the literacy and well-being of hospitalized children.

About Us

Through partnership with the San Francisco Public Library (SFPL), ZSFGH volunteers are trained to read aloud to hospitalized children, as well as to coach parents on how to continue frequent reading when the children go home.

Through partnership with the SFPL, “Healing Words” distributes actual library cards to hospitalized children and their families so that they can continue to enjoy the benefits of the library.

The generosity of donors has allowed “Healing Words” to create a lending library of popular, culturally reflective books that can be checked out or given away to patients and their siblings
