Hope for Henry empowers children with serious illnesses to actively participate in their own care.

Seriously ill children and their families love the entertaining distractions we bring, while leading hospitals partner with us because their experience confirms that our innovative approach leads to better health outcomes. Since 2003, Hope for Henry’s innovative approach has improved the lives of more than 60,000 children at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, DC, Sinai Hospital in Baltimore, Cleveland Clinic Children’s in Cleveland, and ten additional hospitals around the country. Our programs improve patients’ coping skills, help them adhere to their medical protocols, and reduce costs for hospitals.

Hope for Henry collaborates with doctors, nurses, child life specialists, and psychosocial team members to complement and enhance medical treatment. Customized for infancy through adolescence, our programs alleviate the boredom and stress of long hospital stays, encouraging patients and their families to adhere to treatments that can be painful and anxiety-provoking.
