Our Vision

Parents walking with a toddler

Every moment a parent has with their child should be cherished. Our children’s program enhances the quality of life for children with life-limiting illnesses and provides mental, physical, and spiritual support for families from diagnosis to bereavement.

Kangaroo Kidz seeks to enhance the quality of life for children with life-limiting illnesses. Our organization comes alongside the children and their families to walk the journey and provide joy, support, and to discuss the difficult questions.

Kangaroo Kidz provides mental, physical, spiritual, and psychological support for children and their families. We seek to honor patients, friends, and their community by supporting them as well. We want them to walk away from their time with our organization knowing that they provided everything they can for their children.

Kangaroo Kidz also work with perinatal care as well. If your unborn child has a genetic disorder that will not sustain life, we want to serve both the child and parents from the day of diagnosis to bereavement.
