Here to Serve, Inc.
Here to Serve believes that young, working-class families who face the life-threatening health crisis of a child or spouse should not be left to collapse under the strain of a health care system that treats physical wounds, but inflicts fiscal ones. Coordinated support from family, friends and the community is needed to avoid the high rates of illness, death, bankruptcies, and lost productivity at work families with a critically ill child who don’t qualify for government programs. Here to Serve stands in the gap to identify, mobilize and organize a community of support to avoid physical, emotional and financial collapse of the family and caregiver.
Here to Serve provides coordinated physical, financial and emotional support to navigate their home life during the medical crisis of a child. We bring people and organizations together through social media and as family members hand out custom business cards provided by Here to Serve to register friends and loved ones on the family’s custom online care community we develop. This online community provides: an interactive calendar of daily household needs such as meals, child and pet care, house cleaning, shopping, transportation; medical updates; a blog; fundraising, and numerous ways to support the family. Here to Serve’s research coordinator demystifies and provides assisted access to other charities, businesses and organizations.
