enCourage Kids Foundation encourages all kids facing health challenges to be carefree by creating environments and experiences to help them lead their most awesome lives. Our programs reach kids facing a variety of health issues – from those receiving chemo treatments in a clinic to those who live with a chronic illness that may not be visible. What they all have in common is that they deserve the same opportunities to laugh, to play, and to have fun – whether they are being treated in the hospital or living with their struggles at home. With their needs in mind, we have developed unique, family-centered programs that use entertainment and technology to make hospital visits a little less frightening and have created exciting family outings that make everyday life, a little more fun. enCourage Kids programming benefits more than 275,000 sick kids and their families each year.
Our Escapes encourage families and friendships by creating positive memories for kids, siblings and parents through carefree activities outside the hospital all year round. All Escapes are provided free of charge, so that parents, especially those already enduring financial hardship, have one fewer thing to worry about. The ongoing care of a sick child can be expensive, leaving parents with little money for recreational activities. At these events, children get to enjoy normal childhood fun with their families and other kids like them. A sense of camaraderie is formed, and families are able to connect with other families dealing with similar challenges, and return home with a renewed sense of strength and hope.
