Our trained, bilingual staff members help navigate families through honest dialogue and access to information on what cancer they’re fighting, treatment, housing, employment, financial aid, legal aid, and other forms of assistance in a computer lab at Rady Children’s Hospital – San Diego.
Knitting for Hope
Our free sewing, knitting, and crocheting classes become group therapy as families meet others in a similar situation. It’s a coping mechanism for our moms to keep busy while living at the hospital. They often sell what they make bringing in an entrepreneurial component. Our volunteers also create fun craft projects for patients and their siblings.
Single parents and families dependent on two incomes are likely to experience financial difficulties if a parent must quit their job to care for the child. We assist wherever we can from helping with grocery and electric bills to finding a home for displaced families.
