What We Do

We give families a safe base next to the hospital. This allows parents to remain close to their child without having to travel long distances. We have 31 bedrooms, a large kitchen and laundry facilities. Families can eat, sleep and focus on the most important thing – the health of their child.

Donations

Give children the best medicine of all – their families! Donate today and with your help we can relieve some of the pressures that families face during what could be the most difficult time of their lives. Families often stay with us for weeks, months and in some cases years. During this time, help us provide those creature comforts that we all take for granted.
