Families from Upstate New York and from around the Northeast come to our House seeking life-saving treatment for their critically ill children. Often times, they come to us exhausted, scared and financially drained as they struggle to pay overwhelming bills.
We care for up to 25 guest families every night, providing them with a home away from home while their children receive medical treatment. In addition to providing a comfortable bedroom, we surround our families with love and support from our volunteers, staff and other guest families who share the same hopes and fears.
But we could not do everything we do for families in need without your help. Local McDonald’s restaurants and their customers generously provide 30 percent of our annual operating expenses. We do not receive any city, state or federal grant funds. We depend on generous individuals, corporations and foundations to fund the remaining 70 percent of our budget. And, we depend on our extensive volunteer network to better serve our families, while keeping costs down.
There are many ways to make a difference.
