Since its founding in 1995, more than 55,000 families have been served through ongoing, nurturing experiences that complement but do not overtake their day-to-day living. The organization has grown to serve 15 markets, including six Chapters in Ohio, Indiana, Pennsylvania, and South Carolina, and families served in markets throughout Michigan, Maryland, West Virginia, Illinois, Alabama, New York, Washington, D.C., Kentucky, New Jersey, and Delaware.
Every year, more than 27,000 children in the U.S. are diagnosed with a life-threatening condition. With the help of volunteers and donors, A Kid Again is here to help these children and their families reclaim innocence and recapture moments of pure joy. Bringing A Kid Again to more markets means more children facing life-threatening conditions and their families can enjoy Adventures as a family.
WHY WE’RE HERE
For parents caring for a child with a life-threatening condition, claims filed for health care costs range from $400,000 – $600,000 per year.
And for many of these children and their families, support far beyond medical care is critical to their emotional needs and health outcomes
Adventures: Consistent, year-round, and cost-free activities that create meaningful shared experiences and joy-filled memories. Parents and siblings are included so you can enjoy Adventures as a family.
Family Support: Peer-to-peer connections through Adventures that help kids and families feel like they’re
not alone in their journey.
Additional Resources: We also offer support to help
families cope with the extended effects of life-threatening conditions.
