Every child deserves a chance at happiness. Many children are burdened with medical issues and face daily obstacles that may seem insurmountable. At Charity for Children, a local not-for-profit organization, our mission is to provide support to children living with diseases, disabilities, and/or disorders in Central New York. Charity for Children is a child-centered organization, rather than a disease-specific organization, allowing us to fill in where other organizations leave off to leave no family without assistance regardless of their diagnosis.
Our efforts focus on providing assistance directly to children and their families who often struggle to overcome the many associated challenges of health-related issues and expenses. These services are mostly financial, but also include advocacy, intervention, and referrals. Working in conjunction with other organizations, Charity for Children strives to fulfill most, if not all, of our children’s needs. First, last, and always, we are advocates for children.
