When your child has a severe medical condition or illness, priorities shift to doing whatever it takes to care for them. The costs of routine hospital visits, long-term hospitalization, or ongoing life-saving medical treatments can add up quickly and stretch a family’s resources. While there are numerous charities available to help when a child is ill, ensuring that the family can return home without mounting rent or mortgage payments is often overlooked. The Silverton Foundation helps bridge that gap by providing rent and mortgage payments when it’s needed most.
The Silverton Foundation serves families with children who have been hospitalized or are receiving ongoing chronic or critical care treatments. The Silverton Foundation connects with these families through hospitals, nonprofits who focus on serving children, and individual referrals from those who may know someone in need of our assistance. Our goal is for these families to have a home to go back to once a health crisis has passed without the worry of how they’re going to make their rent or mortgage payments.
