Family Reach is a financial lifeline for families fighting cancer.
Since 1996, Family Reach has been helping families with a child or parent afflicted with cancer deal with the overwhelming financial and emotional burdens of the disease. As families try to cope with years of cancer treatment, out-of-pocket medical expenses and everyday living costs, they often reach critical breaking points. Not only do they risk losing their homes, stability, and hope, but also their ability to ensure their loved ones receive the vital care they need to survive. Through an effective process developed through years of close collaboration with hospital social workers, Family Reach provides urgent assistance to families in a timely, compassionate fashion. Family Reach is a lifeline for families fighting cancer nationwide.
Family Reach grants typically range from $500 to $2000 and help cover costs such as:
Mortgage or rent payments
Ensuring a safe, secure shelter and preventing eviction
Covering the costs of transportation, auto repairs, and other travel expenses to help families access critical treatment
Keeping the heat, electricity, and water running to provide a home environment focused on healing and recovery
Uncovered medical expenses
Providing assistance with certain medical expenses that are not covered by insurance to ensure that the best treatments are accessible
Caring for families fighting cancer by covering everyday living expenses, such as groceries
Our team of social workers also provides additional help with obtaining funds for extreme-need cases.
