Mission Statement

There With Care provides a wide range of fundamental and meaningful services to families with children in medical crisis. We serve families, referred by Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, by building a network of services and people who ease the burden of life’s day-to-day obligations with compassion and care. Nearly 90% of our families are low-income and many have been displaced from their communities while they seek medical treatment for their child. Our program is simple. Hospital social workers refer families with the greatest need. Our program coordinators listen to each family’s unique situation to identify and ease what is heavy on their plate - with the goal to give them more time with their sick child and siblings. It may be a ride or gas assistance; it may be groceries, walking a dog, cleaning a home, or babysitting siblings. With each family, our team of staff and over 400 volunteers will support them with care and compassion until they get through their medical crisis.

Description
