Partnership for Children


Partnership for Children believes that all children living with a life-threatening condition should have access to the care and emotional support they need to live life as fully as possible. Our mission is to increase access to medical care for children living with serious illness and to support their families.

The Big Idea

When a child is diagnosed with a serious and often life-threatening illness and must travel hours away to a children’s hospital to receive critical medical care, lack of access to transportation can be a barrier to their care. Our transportation program provides free, safe and reliable rides to treatment for children living with serious illness and their families and we are in need of two new vehicles. Serving over 200 children and their families, our vehicles travel over 50,000 miles per year, from South Monterey County to San Francisco and Oakland and everywhere in between, making sure kids get the critical care they need. Without these new vehicles, children will miss their medical appointments and much-needed treatments. We need your help to make sure that doesn’t happen!

Raising two kids with complex medical issues on my own is challenging. They both have so many medical appointments and special needs. I wouldn't be able to do this on my own. When their mom died unexpectedly just after our daughter was born, I wasn't sure how I was going to handle everything. The support I've received has been a huge help. Partnership for Children gives us rides to all their appointments up in the Bay Area, as well as here locally, along with other supports like rent payment assistance, diapers, food delivery, and gifts during the holidays. We're so grateful.
