Keeping Families Close
Together, we can give families with a sick child what they need most—each other.
Our mission is simple: be there for sick kids and their families, providing comfort and support when and where they need it most. Our objectives are clear: ease the emotional and financial burden families endure. Join us as we expand our housing, meal, and family support services—because every sick child deserves the care they need, surrounded by family and a community they can count on.
Thank you for being there for sick kids and their families.
Your support provides families like the Rosas’ with a neighborhood of support to lean on during teen patient Lizbeth’s medical crisis.
