Mission Statement

The mission of The Medically Fragile Children’s Foundation of Northern California (MFCFNC) is to serve children (up to 21 years of age), who require medical technology and intervention to sustain life, and connect them with the innate experiences associated with growing up, just as their peers without such limitations experience. The MFCFNC supports children who reside in/near Santa Clara County and are consumers of Medi-Cal’s "pediatric subacute care"/ "pediatric day health center" programs or similar services.

Description

We aim to uphold our mission through a five-point BUILD philosophy:

Boosting community awareness and support of each child’s unique spirit and needs regardless of disability, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and/or religion
Utilizing funds and resources to support childhood experiences and life-enhancing equipment that are not normally expected to be covered by a hospital /center and being financially accountable by maintaining transparency to all stakeholders
Improving quality of life by making typical childhood experiences more accessible: engaging in hobbies, celebrating life events (milestone birthdays, graduations), and recreating (going to concerts/movies, sporting events, the park, the mall, etc)
Limiting barriers that impede a child’s ability to live as normal as a life possible
Decreasing financial burden associated with a child’s disability and illness on the family.
