Mission Statement

AVENS PLACE is dedicated to provide stability as a coordinator to families with children who suffer from cancer or other life threatening conditions who urgently need support. A charity that supports families with terminal children during troubled times. This assistance is to help keep these families day to day life as stable as possible. Anyone who has experienced the strain associated with missed work, massive medical expenses and the traditional daily expenses following this type of illness can surely understand why this help is needed. During a time when families should be focused on the care and comfort of their children, help is provided to allow them to cover everyday expenses and living.

Description

AVENS PLACE believes in devoting your time with your child with a terminal or life threatening condition is the most important thing you can do.

During this time, your focus should be on the one that desires and requires your full attention. We wish to help you so you don't have to worry about making ends meet or how you are going to get through the day. We want to help alleviate some of the stress and worries of everyday life. Your child needs you during these times as much as you need them. Our desire is to help you hold on to those moments as much as possible. Our genuine wish is to help you during this difficult time in your life.

So many families deal with so many challenges, obstacles, and struggles when caring for a terminally ill child. All effort, hope and faith is devoted to that child. There's not much room left for any thing else. But life still goes on. For these families life has come to a stand still. We are here to help them tackle the things they might need help with to keep up with life.

Imagine life as a bunch of marbles that you are responsible for and care for on a flat table. There is one big marble that represents your family. That marble is your most important marble and you will have to do anything to protect it. There are another 99 marbles that you have to care for also but take a lot less attention.

One day your big marble gets cracked and it takes all your time to kept that marble from moving, bumping into another marble, chipping away... In the mean time the other 99 marbles are slowly rolling off the table and you can't stop them or your big marble will be lost. Avens Place will help you keep you keep your marbles together.
