In partnership with
Medical care doesn’t stop at patient discharge. That’s why we’ve teamed up with Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters (CHKD) in Norfolk, Virginia, to discover some of the greatest family needs outside the hospital walls. We work closely with hospital social workers to identify families experiencing a critical need and provide support in a meaningful way. Butterfly Blessings helps families admitted to CHKD who demonstrate a severe hardship. After CHKD social workers conduct an assessment to determine family needs, the fund is utilized as a short-term resource to help families with expenses related to transportation (including gas, tolls, cab fare), meals, medications, baby formula, household utilities and more. Although the actual assistance varies from family to family, the impact is ultimately the same; a grateful family able to make their child’s recover their first priority. In order to realize truly successful outcomes, we must not only treat the child, but the entire family. By covering the cost of a family’s basic needs, we can make a huge impact in the lives of these vulnerable families.

STORIES OF IMPACT

“Butterfly Blessings helped the mom of a teenager who has paralysis of both of her legs.  Her mom is a single mother of three children and has been out of work to be with her child every day.  Butterfly Blessings gave the family Walmart gift cards to help provide food and necessary items to her family.”

“After a 13-year old patient was hospitalized several times due to severe allergies and asthma, Butterfly Blessings helped provide funds to replace the child’s sheets that had been damaged due to mold in their home.”

“Butterfly Blessings was used to help a family injured in a car accident while traveling home from a trip. One child was severely injured and treated at CHKD. The parents have not been able to return to work due to their injuries, which has greatly affected their finances. Butterfly Blessings helped them with a one-time rent payment to help maintain housing during a stressful time.”
