Partnership for Children is an independent nonprofit organization focused on increasing access to care for kids with life-threatening conditions and supporting their families with rides and financial help.
Children with cancer and other life-threatening conditions and their families have a difficult enough time with day-to-day activities without having to struggle with how to get to a hospital or doctor’s appointment to get their necessary care. Partnership for Children steps in to offer them free rides to and from their hospital or doctor, or if families can use their own vehicle, the nonprofit provides financial assistance to pay for gas.
