While this year saw the opening back up of the country, for many of the families in our program, their world remains closed and complicated. In our daily work helping deserving families in the Philadelphia region struggling with a child’s medical crisis, one thing is very evident: These families need us now more than ever.
Thanks to your support, Fred’s Footsteps was able to accept more families into our year-long, core program than in any other year in our sixteen year history!
What does that mean?
77 families were able to stay in their homes thanks to Fred’s Footsteps covering mortgage and rent.
8 families were able to make home accommodations to ensure their child could remain there safely.
32 families received help getting around- from car payments, to handicap-accessible vans, to specialty wheelchairs and adaptive tricycles.
