The Fund fills critical gaps in staff funding which allow staff to be available to assist patients with scheduling special tests, school advocacy, disability forms, and much more. It also provides opportunities to engage in small research projects with the goal of improving patient care.
We provide assistance with lunch and transportation reimbursement for medical appointments as well as emergency assistance to families for food assistance, partial rent or utility payments or other issues which may impact child health.
