About Our Work
Pursuing a Health Care System That Works
We believe all children and their families deserve access to a health care system that works for them. One in five children in the United States has a special health care need, which is a physical, developmental, behavioral, or emotional condition that requires more than routine health services. These children and their families face a staggeringly complex system of health and social services with limited access to pediatric specialists and preventative care, leaving them at higher risk for poor health outcomes and increased health care costs.
Commitment to Health Equity
We want all children and families to have a fair and just opportunity to access high-quality health care and resources that meet their needs. Through our grantmaking, thought leadership, and advocacy, we actively and intentionally work to support projects and policies that reduce systemic health care inequities for children with special health care needs, with particular focus on those with limited access to resources and services.
