Our Programs

Rocky Mountain Children’s Health Foundation offers assistance to help families cope with the challenges and expenses that often occur when a child is seriously injured or ill.

We are committed to improving the overall health of children and offer a variety of services rooted in four major areas:

  1. Patient & Family Assistance provides direct support to patients and families to help cover critical non-medical costs such as gas and grocery cards, taxi vouchers and social worker and emergency grants to families in need of assistance.
  2. The Stink Bug Project supports families who have a child diagnosed with a serious medical condition. The Stink Bug Project matches well-trained, loving companion dogs with families throughout the Rocky Mountain region.
  3. Mothers’ Milk Bank is a nonprofit milk bank and adheres to the strict guidelines of the Human Milk Banking Association of North America (HMBANA). Mothers’ Milk Bank collects, tests, processes and provides donor human milk to fragile babies across the country.
  4. Best Start Program aims to provide all new families in Colorado with essential information on safe sleep practices, human milk as baby’s best first food and fun, brain-building activities.

We also provide support:

  • to families with babies in the NICUs by providing car seats, diapers, blankets, clothing and other essentials.
  • for pediatric patients and their families by creating events and activities to help ease the stress of the long and intensive treatments these patients must often undergo.
  • for perinatal services to mothers and infants with cancer and other serious health conditions.
  • toys and books to boost morale and create a sense of community for the pediatric patient and family population.

The dollars that go to RMCHF go directly to patients and their families and that sets this foundation apart from others where fundraising is for the bricks and the mortar and the equipment. It’s really for the families and the patients. -Dr. Steve Leonard
