Who We Are
Embrace Kids Foundation exists to lighten the burden and improve the quality of life for children with cancer, sickle cell and other serious disorders in the New Jersey/New York City metropolitan area. Underlying all of our programs is our goal to help maintain as much normalcy as possible in our patients' lives by addressing the spiritual, emotional and financial issues of the kids and their families. We believe that addressing the needs of the patient and families as a whole is a critical part of caring for the child. A partial list of the programs and services offered by the foundation includes the Embrace Kids Learning Center, Emergency Financial Assistance, Tackle Sickle Cell, Family Services, Inspirational Events, Social Services and Counseling, The Edith and Martin Stein Building of Hope and the David E.
