Families caring for medically fragile children struggle financially as their children undergo treatment. Jacob's Heart provides direct assistance to keep seriously ill children in their homes, with bills paid and lights kept on.
And in the event of the loss of a precious child, Jacob's Heart is here, assisting families with funeral and memorial expenses.
We know how difficult it can be to focus on finances when your child is seriously ill. That’s why Jacob’s Heart offers families yearly, direct financial assistance as their child undergoes treatment.
How it works
Each year, families get a lump sum of direct financial assistance. These funds can be used all at once, to pay for an auto repair, for example. They can also be used over the course of the year for rent, bills and insurance payments.
Funeral and Memorial Expense Support
Losing a child is a pain like no other. Jacob’s Heart is here to make sure funeral and memorial expenses are the last thing a parent has to worry about during this unimaginable heartache.
How it works
The Family Support Specialist will accompany families with emotional and financial support to make sure memorial costs and details are handled lovingly.
“Jacob's Heart has given our family valuable financial help during really hard times.”
