LAUNCH THE VALERIE FUND AT ST. JOSEPH’S HOSPITAL $2 Million
The new Valerie Fund Center at St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital in Paterson will expand our state‑of‑the‑art, compassionate care to a new region of New Jersey, reaching an additional 1,000 children with life-threatening oncological and hematological illnesses and their families each year. The new Center offers psychosocial services to diverse populations in northern New Jersey, some of which are among the most economically disadvantaged.
This new Valerie Fund Center will:
Provide comprehensive care to patients and families that integrates the expertise of social workers, child life specialists, psychologists, educational liaisons and financial counselors
Offer the full range of services to patients and families at no charge, close to home, where they are also receiving treatment
Serve communities of need, including many patients whose primary language at home is not English
Serve patients and families from Passaic, Bergen, Hudson and Essex counties, and even Pennsylvania
Host a newly-renovated playroom where kids can be kids
Working together, The Valerie Fund and St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital will have an even greater impact on some of the most vulnerable children in the immediate and surrounding communities who require the medical care and psychosocial care that this partnership guarantees.
THE NEED IS GREAT. JOIN US ON THE JOURNEY FORWARD.
