Give kids the reality of better health!

The IWS Children’s Clinic provides care to more than 3,200 dental and medical patients with a total of 9,000 visits annually. Our patients range from newborns to young adults up to 21 years old, including children with special needs. Our behavioral Health and Social Services program ensures that mental health concerns and critical basic needs of our patients are met.

There is a significant gap between the cost of care and the Medicaid reimbursement received from the State. This equates to a more than $1 million shortfall that must be raised each year. Your support can make a truly meaningful difference in the lives of those in need. By donating today, you can help provide essential services and bring hope to those who depend on us.

Join us in making a positive impact – every contribution counts!
