Bounce Children's Foundation transforms the lives of chronically ill children, and their families, shifting all from surviving to thriving.
For the nearly 1 in 5 U.S. children who battle chronic illness, life is a series of shots, surgeries, treatments, hospitalizations, limitations. When a child is diagnosed, the entire family is diagnosed. Sick kids live as patients. Healthy siblings take a 'back seat.’ And parents must manage crises for which there is no training.
While pediatric hospitals offer vast resources, life changes dramatically at-home and in-the-community. Invisible and isolated, the health and well being of all are at risk.
Bounce Children’s Foundation is the only organization to fill this gap. A unique program portfolio offers: community & connection; fun & friendship; education & resources; hope & encouragement; a place to belong - until cures are found.
100% privately-funded, Bounce is free to members. There are no income requirements but many are low income and all face extraordinary out-of-pocket medical costs. The definition of high risk, they have been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic.
Bounce has grown to support 2,200+ Kiddos/Siblings/Parents in just 6 years. But there are many more who need us - especially now. Growth plans are in place across the organization and volunteers are critical to all. Regardless of your skill set or schedule, you can change the life of a child.
Your time and talent will help more families build the resiliency needed to live happier, healthier lives. As one Bounce Dad put it, "Bounce helps families heal!" Thank you for creating more healing!
