Jacob's Heart Children's Cancer Support Services provides family-centered care that addresses the emotional, practical and financial struggles for families of children and teens during treatment, families experiencing anticipatory grief and those who are bereaved.
Our service area includes Santa Cruz, Monterey, San Benito, and South Santa Clara Counties in California.
Our Approach to Care
Our approach to care begins with a thorough assessment of a family’s needs. We recognize that no two paths look exactly the same. That’s why we make it our mission to meet families wherever they’re at - practically, socially and emotionally.
