If you are a parent caring for a sick child and need help making ends meet, Pennies from Heaven may be able to help.
Financial Assistance for Families With a Sick Child
Pennies from Heaven provides financial assistance for families in need so they don’t have to leave their sick child’s bedside. They will do whatever they can to help- whether that means covering a rent or mortgage payment, electric or medical bill, or even groceries for the week.
In order to qualify for assistance, a child must be “medically involved” which means currently or recently hospitalized or receiving ongoing medical treatment at a medical facility or at home through specialized nursing care.
If a child is a patient at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, please contact the social worker or health care professional assigned to that child. He or she will have access to a Pennies From Heaven “Patient Information Form” that must be filled out to process a request.
If a child is receiving care from a hospital or medical facility other than Children’s Hospital Of Philadelphia, please email Pennies from Heaven directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and they will send you the necessary information.
Since February, 2010, Pennies from Heaven has raised about $80,000 and helped over 100 families. Now that really is amazing!
