Individual Support

Individual Support is offered for children diagnosed with a serious medical condition, ages birth – 18, and their families. Professional support staff assist families to cope with the diagnosis, treatments and changes in family dynamics as a result of the condition. Sessions are provided at Tu Nidito, the hospital, the family's home, or other locations in the community. Specialized curriculum helps each family member integrate coping tools, understand emotions, and foster new ways to communicate.

Group Support

Group Support is available for children and teens who have a parent or caregiver in their life who has been diagnosed with a serious medical condition. Groups provide a safe place to process the changes in each family member’s life due to the medical condition using guided discussions and peer-to-peer interaction. While children and teens are receiving support, the diagnosed adult and their partner attend their own support group. This empowers them to share their challenges and learn ways to best support their children.

All services are provided free of charge in both English and Spanish, thanks to the generosity of Tu Nidito’s supporters.
