Jacob’s Heart Transportation Program
Jacob’s Heart strives to meet the growing need for safe, reliable transportation for families during treatment. With no local pediatric oncology facilities, families must make the drive — 90 minutes, one-way, without traffic — to treatment at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital or UCSF. This puts a tremendous amount of additional stress on families who lack access to reliable transportation. Jacob’s Heart has integrated transportation services into our family-centered model of care by combining hospital visits, deliveries and emotional support provided in the hospital with our transportation services. We provide more than just a ride — we provide counseling, support, interpretation and a shared experience on the journey.
