“To improve the quality-of-life of children with cancer and their families in Georgia by extending HOPE through social, emotional, spiritual, educational and financial support.”
At Jay’s HOPE, we are blessed to be called to stand in the gap with our local families as they battle childhood cancer. We call this the Circle of HOPE. Click HERE to learn more about what we offer our children and families.
Bringing our families together through monthly social activities expands their support systems, offers encouragement, alleviates feelings of isolation and creates lasting relationships.
The Jay’s HOPE office has a large play therapy room where patients and siblings can escape the hospital setting and relax while engaging in a number of age-appropriate activities. We also frequently visit our hospital-bound children and provide respite for our parents.
Family Resource Center
Our office has a large patient library where caregivers can find resource and inspirational books and materials. We also offer Internet service that families can use for research.
We have an amazing and compassionate teacher who works with our students. She helps parents navigate the process of developing individual educational plans with their children’s schools and also works through the local hospital home-bound system.
Temporary Housing and Travel
Jay’s HOPE maintains an apartment for free use by our families in the event that the Ronald McDonald house is full or if they do not qualify to stay there. We also provide gas and meal assistance to those traveling far from home for treatment.
Through our generous donor dollars, we are able to offer need-based financial assistance to those who qualify. Many families face financial difficulties during this life-altering diagnosis. We are blessed to be able to join hands with them and meet immediate needs.
