Urgent funding needs at Mary Bridge Children's
The Helping Hands fund removes barriers that can prevent a patient from healing or a family from supporting their child. Funds purchase gas cards for transportation to and from appointments, prescriptions, meal vouchers and basic needs assistance.
Mobile Immunization Clinics
The Mary Bridge Children’s Mobile Immunization Clinics provide free vaccines to children. As teens and children become eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, your donations will help vaccinate children.
Tree House: A Place for Families
Tree House offers housing and amenities for out-of-town families who have an infant or child receiving care at Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital.
Child Life Services
For more than 40 years, the Mary Bridge Children’s Child Life Services team has been helping children and families feel as safe and comfortable as possible during even the most challenging health care experiences.
Mary Bridge Children’s serves more than 300,000 children each year. More than half of the families served are low-income and more than 60 percent of Mary Bridge Children’s families are on Medicaid.
Because of donations through the Mary Bridge Children’s Foundation, we can provide children with the care they need. Thanks to generous donors, the Foundation continues to support uncompensated care and clinical and community programs not fully covered by insurance.
