HELP A CHILD CHARITY INC
Jacksonville, Florida - 32216  HEALTH & MEDICAL
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 READ MORE 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.

NEW HOPE FOR KIDS
Maitland, Florida - 32751  HEALTH & MEDICAL
New Hope for Kids is the largest independent grief support center in Florida. We are one of the oldest wish-granting organizations in Central Florida. We work with children (ages 3-18) READ MORE and families coping with the death of a loved one and grant wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses.

Our Mission is to support children and families grieving the death of a loved one and to grant wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses. In addition we provide a series of family events, parental support and special events to current and past families.

Children attending this program will learn to work out grief issues with specialized activities in the company of counselors and peers. They will learn techniques that enable them to solve problems in a healthy way. Our structured approach will help prevent anguished children from spiraling downward toward self-destruction and enable them to become healthy, self-sufficient members of the community by: 1) Teaching them proactive ways to work through grief related issues and other problems that arise in life. 2) Teaching them self-confidence, self-reliance and the capacity to make healthy choices. 3) Teaching children to deal compassionately with others who are troubled or in pain.

We offer the only program in the Central Florida area that addresses grief and bereavement needs of both children, their caregivers and counselors, a crucial program feature because the death of a loved one affects all family members and often causes irreparable family upheaval if unresolved grief issues are not addressed.

The program is designed to last for one full year in order to adequately deal with all the grief issues that arise as anniversaries and special family occasions occur.
