George Mark Children’s House

Submitted by on July 15, 2010 – 2:39 pm

George Mark Children’s House is a nonprofit organization that provides the gift of time to children with life-limiting illnesses and their families – time for kids to be just kids and parents to be “mom” and “dad”, instead of round-the-clock caregivers. As the first— and, currently, only—freestanding residential pediatric palliative care facility in the United States, we offer a unique alternative to hospice, hospital, or home care. Our House is setting a new standard for pediatric palliative care, providing high-quality medical care to children with life-limiting illnesses and much-needed support services to their parents and siblings in a home-like setting.

George Mark relied heavily on philanthropic support, and were forced to suspend inpatient services this March,but will re-open in October. Right now The Washington Hospital Healthcare System is matching donations up to $125.000 so your donation would be doubled!
