Approximately 3,500 children are hospitalized at MetroHealth each year. Extended hospital stays can be frightening for children and families, but Child Life specialists have the tools to help them cope with and manage the hospital experience.

Comprehensive Care Salary Support and Equipment (Make a Donation) 
More than 1,000 families in Northeast Ohio whose children have multiple disabilities choose MetroHealth because of its Comp Care program. Parents caring for a special needs child appreciate the integrated care that addresses the multiple physical and emotional needs of a child or young adult with chronic and complicated conditions. Donors help these patients achieve their full potential by ensuring seamless care coordination.  

Community Advocacy Program (CAP) Salary Support and Evaluation (Make a Donation)
The Community Advocacy Program (CAP) teams MetroHealth doctors with lawyers from the Legal Aid Society of Cleveland to identify and resolve social and environmental barriers to good health. CAP has assisted more than 500 of Cleveland’s most vulnerable residents, most of whom have an annual household income of $12,000 or less. There’s a long waiting list of families in need of help. We need to reach out to those interested in giving more families a chance at good health and encourage them to support CAP.
