Joy means something different to everyone — including very sick children and their families. At CCA, we provide a voice of experience, compassion and hope for families whose needs extend beyond medical treatment. Because we’ve been there, we know that the best services are those that serve your needs. So our innovative bilingual programs, resources, and support are based on the needs voiced by families across the nation for the last 17 years — and counting.


friendsThere are no friendships quite like the friendships of our childhood. But serious illness is like an invisible wall, isolating kids not only from their regular lives, but from their friends and school activities, too. CCA tailors opportunities and programs to support kids, teens and their families as they face the realities of isolation, hospitalization, and a limited ability to participate in school activities, clubs, sports, etc.
