How We Help

The Forrest Spence Fund strives to accomplish its mission of assisting with the non-medical needs of critically and chronically ill children throughout the Mid-South by focusing on 4 areas:

  1. Meeting individual patient and family needs.
  2. Working with institutions to better recognize and meet non-medical needs.
  3. Connecting families with counseling and support groups and covering the cost of counseling for families with a chronically ill child and for bereaved families.
  4. Providing grants to families demonstrating need.
