2023 Grants for Good Recipient
- Crescent Cove
$20,000 to Hospitality for Families
- Grant Secured by Lindsay R Longballa

What is the grant for and how will it benefit the community?
Hospitality is a priority at Crescent Cove to ensure every family has meaningful experiences with their child considering their child has a shortened life expectancy and most likely will not live to adulthood. The families who visit Crescent Cove do not have typical experiences or opportunities as the majority of the children who visit have complex chronic conditions requiring around the clock care.
The grant funding will be used to enhance and further develop our hospitality program for families of children with life-threatening conditions. In 2024, we will be hiring a part-time cook to ensure that when families visit Crescent Cove they have a warm meal that meets their dietary needs.
Additionally, we have nurses who care for the child who is sick and a child experience specialist who ensures there are meaningful experiences throughout the child’s stay for respite or end-of-life care at Crescent Cove.
