We are dedicated to financially supporting children and families of children diagnosed with cancer and other serious medical conditions. The funds we raise directly provide these families with assistance for medical bills, treatments, equipment, transportation and other significant expenses incurred throughout the various stages of the child's unfortunate illness. More specifically our programs include:
Fighting Childhood Cancer and Other Diseases
Assisting families of children undergoing bone marrow transplants
Providing transportation to and from hospitals for families in need
Financial support to families with overwhelming medical bills
Providing a therapist for children in need at home and on inpatient floors
Affording mortgage and utility bill assistance for families in need
Providing dinners for children and their families at holiday times
Distributing gifts for children on holidays
Providing financial assistance for funeral expenses and family counseling
Emergency assistance is provided for those families that find themselves in need. Heat, electricity and doctor bills are common needs.
By providing food, and formula for infants, we are assured of well balanced diets for our young clients
Clean seasonal clothing is provided for children. In some instances, like our "Back to School" program, new clothing is provided for a renewed sense of self worth.
We subsidize "smoking awareness" programs in local elementary schools to alert young children to the dangers of smoking.
Special Transportation Assistance Program
We provide cars free of charge or at a price significantly below fair market value to poor, underprivileged and low income individuals who are in need of a means of transportation.
Due to the state of the economy and the increased demand for assistance, we have expanded this program to include the sale of donated vehicle to the general public who are in need of inexpensive transportation.
We serve children and their families regardless of race, creed, or religion. Immediate assistance can sustain a family until a long term plan is developed and implemented. In some instances, emergency assistance lessens the future need for welfare or other public assistance.
To combat poverty, we give caring support so the family may improve their lives and quality of living. We view all families as deserving of respect and dignity. By providing balanced meals and clean seasonal clothing, out clients experience a renewed sense of self worth, regardless of their age.
