Our Mission: Help a Child Charity Mission is to provide tutoring and educational services for children and families affected by cancer.
Our Vision: Cancer has the ability to not only affect the child or adult; it could have lasting effects on the “Whole Family”. Help a Child Charity understands the sometime extensive medical treatment along with, missed days from school, lost homework time for the child or their siblings while on the road to healing or just trying to stay on top of things. Our vision, to partner with other community nonprofits to travel the road of healing with the “Whole Family” inspiring hope, bringing smiles to children faces and have fun while learning, Help a Child will be there.
Our Services: Our Staff will provide fun educational games to keep the child’s cognitive development stimulated. Services will be provided to children and their siblings who may not get the homework assistance they need. Tutors will go into homes, hospitals and any other locations designated in a timely matter, also available to work with the school’s IEP for that child. Our caring staff will work hard to motivate the child to keep up with school; because we understand this translates to motivation to finish treatment and get back to a normal life. The tutor helps them discover the need to keep up with school, no matter what the diagnosis, because our staff believes the child will beat this disease and be back in school.
Help a Child will continue to provide ongoing academic assistance even after treatment, to battle any long-term cognitive effects or until the “Whole Family” has healed. More important than test scores, are the scores of confidence, inspiration, smiles and strength Help a Child is able to create on long term basis for all families we are a part of.
