Our Focus

Through our compassionate care model, Hands of Hope provides support for the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of children and their families so they can focus on what matters most.

The Care We Provide

Nurse case management assistance for coordination of care and services

Limited consultation with a dietitian, chaplain, and social worker as needed

Collaboration with the patient's medical providers for pain and symptom management

Concurrent Care:

Scheduled visits with a medical provider and 24/7 physician on-call coverage

Nurse case management assistance for coordination of care

Scheduled nursing visits by a registered nurse

Social work, chaplain, child life, and dietitian services
