Mission Statement

TO ENHANCE THE QUALITY OF LIFE FOR PEDIATRIC PATIENTS AND THEIR FAMILIES IN THE ROCKY MOUNTAIN REGION.

Description

Throughout the year, Rocky Mountain Children’s Health Foundation provides direct assistance to more than 2,000 pediatric patients and their families in need. Thousands of babies in NICUs receive precious donor human milk, children will be matched with loving companion dogs, nurses and medical support staff will participate in training and service missions and thousands of dollars will be awarded to organizations who share in our mission.

We are committed to improving the overall health of children. RMCHF is an avenue for community support by offering a variety of services rooted in three major areas:

Patient & Family Assistance provides direct support to patients and families to help cover critical non-medical costs such as gas and grocery cards, taxi vouchers, social worker and emergency assistance grants to families in need of assistance.
We also provide support:

  • to families with babies in the NICU by providing car seats, diapers, blankets, clothing and other essentials.
  • for pediatric patients and their families by creating events and activities to help ease the stress of the long and intensive treatments these patients must often undergo.
  • for perinatal services for mothers and infants with pre-partum or post-partum health conditions or complications.
    • toys and books to boost morale and create a sense of community for the pediatric patient and family population.

    The Stink Bug Project supports families who have a child diagnosed with a serious medical condition. The Stink Bug Project matches well-trained, loving companion dogs with families, throughout the Rocky Mountain region.

    Mothers’ Milk Bankis a nonprofit milk bank and adheres to the strict guidelines of the Human Milk Banking Association of North America (HMBANA). Mothers’ Milk Bank collects, processes and provides donor human milk to fragile babies across the country.
