Family Life Auxiliary of Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation

Having a child with medical challenges can be overwhelming, and caring for the family’s psychosocial needs is just as important as caring for the child’s medical needs. The Family Life Auxiliary of Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation is a network of volunteers who are committed to helping transform the lives of patients and families. Our efforts help to heal the entire family and send patients home with a family that feels supported, cared for, and empowered to continue their child’s recovery process. This dynamic group of volunteers is dedicated to increasing awareness and raising vital funds to enhance the quality of care provided to our patients. These funds help support activities and programs that patients and their families can enjoy together during their stay at the hospital. Click here to meet our Auxiliary members!
