Emergency Assistance Fund

An illness or injury to a child can be traumatic for the entire family, both emotionally and financially.

The Emergency Assistance Fund at Children's Mercy uses criteria based upon patient and family needs to assist with short-term, day-to-day expenses related to caring for their children. The fund typically assists with needs that are not covered by insurance, or available through other benefits, family income or community resources.

In-kind donations (i.e. gas, grocery, discount store, pharmacy pre-paid cards) as well as monetary donations are appreciated.
