Jack’s Assistance program has been busier than ever in 2024. Since January, we’ve received 203 client requests and have provided over $32,000 in assistance.
When a child is diagnosed with a medical condition, families often get hit with a staggering amount of medical jargon, bills, and uncertainty. Jack’s Helping Hand is honored to help families with gas, food, and lodging during these difficult times to ensure children can get to their appointments with specialists, families can stay together, and parents can feel more supported.
Our Assistance Program is available to any family with a child under 21 living in San Luis Obispo County with medical needs. Check out our website or call our office for more information!
