What We Do And Why We Do It!
Here to Serve, a 501 (c) (3) charity dedicated to collaboration and cooperation with the community, provides caregivers and their families non-medical support through a life-threatening health crisis with a loved one. Inspired by the medical trials in her own family, Founder Kathleen Quintas started Here to Serve to mobilize volunteers, businesses, corporations, and other nonprofit organizations to provide targeted care to families with children at home who have either a critically ill child or a parent going through a life-and-death medical crisis. Many caregivers don't realize the challenges they will likely face when they start this journey...emotional, financial, physical, psychological and sometimes spiritual.
The support offered at the start of the journey, lulls many families to believe they will get through the medical crisis with the help of friends. But these journeys can last a long time and even the most well-intentioned family members and friends get overwhelmed with the sheer magnitude and length of the journey and support often wanes. Here to Serve operates best at the beginning of the crisis mobilizing and organizing people and resources to remain engaged throughout journey; all this without overwhelming the caregiver or a friend(s) or family member(s).
