About A KID AGAIN INC

Location:

8275 Allison Pointe Trail Suite 220, Indianapolis, IN 46250, US

Mission Statement

A Kid Again fosters Hope, Happiness and Healing for families raising kids with life-threatening illness.

Description

Who We Are:
For twenty plus years, A Kid Again has helped to restore a sense of normal for families thrust into the situation of having to care for a child with a life-threatening illness. Often these families are unprepared and unequipped to deal with what follows. A Kid Again hosts year-round events to support these families and provide them with memories that will last a lifetime.

Why We Do It:
A Kid Again is specifically designed to involve the entire family (not just the child who is ill) to improve the wellbeing of everyone affected by the situation. The families who participate in A Kid Again give back as much as they receive by connecting with each other and sharing their own stories of strength and encouragement.

What We Do:
Year 'round fun-filled adventures that allow children with life-threatening illnesses to feel like A Kid Again. Unlike other "wish" organizations, A Kid Again works to create a communal and interactive environment. Our program establishes ongoing, nurturing experiences that complement but do not overtake their day-to-day living.

How We Do It:
We accomplish this mission through the dedication of our volunteer network and the generosity of our donors. We strive to go beyond activities, providing comprehensive, practical support to help families cope with the extended effects of life threatening illnesses.
