Our Sponsor Kids

Each year we receive applications from multiple families seeking assistance from our organization.  Some of them in need of limited assistance while others require much more financial assistance.  We assist families with medical bills, equipment and every day expenses that seem to fall behind while caring for a sick child such as groceries, mortgage, vehicle expenses etc. Sadly, we have even assisted the families with funeral expenses in a few cases.

 

We select one family to be our Sponsor Family each year.  Our sponsor family is chosen by our Board of Directors and is selected based on several factors.  We feel that they are the ones most in need of our organizations assistance.  While we do assist multiple families throughout the year, it is our sponsor family who generally receives the most financial help throughout the year.
