Our Mission

We exist to foster hope, happiness, and healing for children with life-threatening conditions and their families.

Our Vision

Every child in America with a life-threatening condition can be A Kid Again.

We make life for families caring for a child with a life-threatening condition“normal” again by helping them gain back moments of positive, family-shared experiences and memories.

Little Girl at Adventure with Siblings

Why We Do It

A Kid Again is specifically designed to involve the entire family (not just the child who is ill) to improve the wellbeing of everyone affected by the situation. The families who participate in A Kid Again give back as much as they receive by connecting with each other and sharing their own stories of strength and encouragement.

Smiling Blond Boy

What We Do

Year-round fun-filled adventures that allow children with life-threatening conditions to feel like A Kid Again. A Kid Again works to create a communal and interactive environment. Our program establishes ongoing, nurturing experiences that complement but do not overtake their day-to-day living.

How We Do It

We accomplish this mission through the dedication of our volunteer network and the generosity of our donors. We strive to go beyond activities, providing comprehensive, practical support to help families cope with the extended effects of life-threatening conditions.
