Florida Elks Children’s Therapy Services provides in-home physical and occupational therapy to Florida children in need of such services. This rehabilitation is necessary to be rendered in the home because of the absence of these services locally or because of the patient being medically infirmed at home. Priority is given to children who do not have ready access to therapy as a result of financial considerations.
Our services focus on child-centered treatment and family education throughout Florida. Our program is based on the premise that skilled therapy services combined with the completion of an individualized home program, exercises and activities designed by the therapist will positively impact children and families. FECTS believes children and their families or caregivers need to be viewed in a holistic manner. Upon receiving the patient application of referral, the therapist will arrange a home visit for evaluation purposes. If the patient is accepted into the program, a regular weekly home visitation schedule is established.
Parents are required to be present so they can carry out treatments between visits by the therapists.
THE ELKS HOOP SHOOT FREE-THROW CONTEST HAS SERVED TO HIGHLIGHT THE ELKS COMMITMENT TO AMERICA’S YOUTH.
From the millions of youngsters who participate and advance through the local, district, state and regional competition, six national champions are named – one boy and one girl in each of the three categories: ages 8-9, 10-11 and 12-13.
The winners each receive a trophy and their names are inscribed on a plaque at the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Massachusetts.
The Elks goal with this program is to provide a character-building, competitive program for all girls and boys regardless of their previous athletic competition or abilities.
The competition takes place at the beautfiful Florida Elks Youth Camp located at 24175 S.E. Hwy. 450, Umatilla, FL 32784
