Kristies Foundation provides support, programs, assistance, and cherished moments for criticallyill children and their families.
Kristies Foundation offers several programs to provide support and assistance to our families.
The Family Support program a community based program for southern California families who have a child battling a life threatning illness and whose lives have been interupted by this family crisis. Kristies provides support and services through specially trained staff and volunteers. We assist with emergency funds, hospital visits, in hospital respite care, support durring difficult procedures or lengthly hospital stays, parent connect and support groups, bereavement support, and more.
Kids club is also a community based program that creates opportunities for the families to spend much needed time together outside of their world of hospitals and doctors. It gives the families a time to re-charge and create moments and memories together.
The wish assist program partners with wish granting organizations and hospice programs from all over the world to bring kids to Southern California for a magical week-long "Wish Trip". Kristie's coordinates the trip down to the smallest of details and provides the family support and care while they stay with us. The families are treated to local theme parks, restaurants, celebrity meet and greets, and all the love and support of our dedicated staff and volunteers.
Kristies Place, last but certainly not least!!! Kristies Place will be the first Pediatric end of life care facility in Southern California. At Kristies Place, we will focus on life and helping families make the most of every moment.
In short, we wrap our arms around these very special families to help them with all their special needs.
