Programs

Casey Cares provides bi-monthly support to each family in our programs. Families whose lives have been turned upside down by the diagnosis and treatment of a critically ill child receive support. There are six different programs in which our families participate. Our Family Festivities Program provides families with tickets to sporting events, area attractions, museums, plays, live shows and concerts. Working with hotels and businesses, the Casey Cares team designs a weekend vacation package for families participating in our Celebration Vacation Program. For a critically ill child, celebrating a birthday is an important milestone. To honor their special day, we initiated our Birthday Blast Program that provides a surprise delivery of a birthday cake, flowers, and cookie or balloon bouquets on the child's birthday. Added three years ago, the Kami's Jammies Program provides new sleepwear and themed pajama parties to children on extended hospital stays. Our newest program, the Caring Connections Group Party Program allows families to meet, share and lean on each other while taking part in fun group activities. Finally, our Better Together Program encourages families who have lost a child to continue to participate with our programs for an additional year to help heal.
