In the News

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, families can stay together, and parents can feel more secure. Our Assistance Program is available to any family with a child under 21 with medical needs. Check out our website or call our office for more information!

We created unforgettable memories at Camp Reach for the Stars this past weekend! Laughter and love filled every moment as our families affected by cancer came together. None of this would have been possible without the support of our generous community and the dedication of our incredible volunteers, counselors, and families who made this weekend truly special. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!
