Give kids the reality of better health – and help us raise $100K by the end of June! All gifts received by June 30th will be matched dollar-for-dollar, up to $100K.

So many children in our community need pediatric healthcare.
The IWS Children’s Clinic is a safety net, offering children the best chance to lead long, healthy lives. You and IWS Children’s Clinic together change the lives of vulnerable children.

Children like “Lizzie”, who began talking to herself and tightly hugging her body during her dental appointment. The IWS Children’s Clinic dental team, who received specialized training to recognize behavioral health concerns, noted the distress and referred Lizzie to Maria Allemana, our Clinic social worker. Maria discussed the concerns with Lizzie’s mom who revealed that Lizzie also displayed unusual behaviors at home. Lizzie was referred for mental health services which included a full psychiatric evaluation and sleep study.

Your donations help fund the comprehensive health services for children and families with limited means and challenging circumstances.

Please Give Today.
