Since 1982, the Believe In Tomorrow National Children’s Foundation, a non-profit organization, has been helping critically ill children and their families restore normalcy and joy to their lives with three programs: Children’s Hospital and Retreat Housing, Pain Management and Distraction Technology and Hands On Adventures.

The foundation is looking for donations ranging from lip balms to skin care lotions to include in welcome baskets provided to families during their stay in their housing facilities. Charitable contribution receipts are offered. Visit or for more information.

Believe In Tomorrow Children’s House at Johns Hopkins provides a family-centered, supportive residence for children and their families receiving medical care at the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center. The foundations second hospital housing facility, the Children’s House at St. Casimir, which will open later this year, is designed for long term pediatric bone marrow transplant patients and their families to stay there.

Additionally, the foundation offers Children’s Retreat Housing. These facilities include Believe In Tomorrows Children’s House By The Sea in Ocean City, as well as The Children’s House on Fenwick Island. There, families come to retreat facilities to escape the stressful routine of medical treatment and doctor visits and are treated to a relaxing vacation setting where they rejuvenate themselves mentally and physically. Additionally, children and their families spend quality time together while enjoying a wide range of activities for free. The Children’s House on Wisp Mountain will be completed this summer.
