Family Support and Resources

Support icon

We know that a child's illness or injury can impact a family physically, emotionally and financially. Fortunately, you don't have to face these challenges alone. We provide a growing number of services for patients and families, all designed to help support, heal and encourage you through every step of your journey.

If you're wanting to learn more about your child's diagnosis, our family health librarians can help you access reliable information. You'll also find help with everything from language barriers to social services. And we offer family support, comfort during difficult or stressful times, and activities to help make your stay here more comfortable and create quality family time.
