General

  • Mission:
  • Since 1987, Chai Lifeline's mission has been to restore the light of childhood to children whose innocence ended when life-threatening or lifelong illness was diagnosed.

  • Overview:
  • Through programs that address the emotional, social, and financial needs of seriously ill children, their families, and communities, Chai Lifeline restores normalcy to family life, and better enables families to withstand the crises and challenges of serious pediatric illness.
    To bring joy to children and hope to their families, we have created over two-dozen diverse programs that include:
    • Hospital visits & hot meals
    • Tutoring and laptop loans for homebound children
    • Sibling programs
    • Big Brothers & Big Sisters
    • Counselling, art therapy, family retreats, & emotional support
    • Therapeutic recreational outings for children & families
    Chai Lifeline’s guiding principles are:
    • That seriously ill children need and deserve as happy and normal a childhood as possible;
    • That illness affects each member of the family;
    • That the well-being of an ill child is impacted by the well-being of his or her family;
    • That paediatric illness can have a devastating financial effect on families.

  • History:
  • With this in mind, Chai Lifeline strives to:
    • Find ways to bring joy to the lives of our young patients and their families through creative, innovative, and effective family-centered programs, activities, and services;
    • Engender hope and optimism in children, families, and communities;
    • Educate and involve communities in caring for ill children and their families;
    • Provide unparalleled support throughout the child’s illness, recovery, and beyond;
    • Offer all services free of charge to ensure that every family has access to the programs it needs;
