Mission Statement

Fred’s Footsteps provides financial assistance to hard-working families in the Philadelphia region who find themselves in a crisis due to the costs associated with caring for a seriously ill, injured or disabled child.

Description

Fred’s Footsteps provides financial assistance to hard-working families in the Philadelphia region who find themselves in a crisis due to the costs associated with caring for a seriously ill, injured or disabled child. Our families are responsible citizens who were otherwise financially stable until faced with the astronomical out-of-pocket costs associated with caring for a sick child. They receive little or no financial relief from other private charities or government agencies.

While the organization recognizes that there are no quick fixes, and many families need continued support as they go through the ups and downs of their child’s illness, Fred’s Footsteps hopes to provide a bridge, not just momentary help, and the program is structured to families for a period of one year. The organization also acts as an advocate for the families, linking them to other organizations that may be able to provide assistance.

Fred’s Footsteps does not limit its funding to certain illnesses and understands that there are thousands of rare diseases that have little or no funding from other organizations. We support families whose children have been in house fires, car accidents, born prematurely or have experienced other traumatic episodes.
