Trillium Kids was created to provide practical support to families of children with special needs. Often times families face emotional distress and financial burdens related to everyday care of a special needs child. During times of sickness, these stresses are increased due to uncertainty of health outcomes, increased hassles related to medical regimens, social isolation, accompanied by financial strain due to private medical insurance and government assistance programs not covering additional costs associated with treatment of a special needs child. Trillium Kids supports families caring for a child with special needs during times of sickness, including chronic or temporary illness.
Our program gives small grants to provide basic support so families can focus on proper treatment and sustained quality of life for their child.
Trillium Kids has partnered with the non-profit Sweet Nectars Society, to develop the Forever Sweeties Grief Support Group for parents who have experienced the loss of a child.
The founder of Trillium Kids, Dr. David Sine has collaborated with JUMO Health to create the very first illustrated, age appropriate, booklet to explain pediatric palliative care.
Your support and contributions enable Trillium Kids to improve the quality of life of incredible children who are faced with difficult situations.
