For the 1 in 5 children in America living in poverty, education is their ticket to a better future. All across the country, kids without access to a doctor are struggling in school, trying to cope with untreated health problems.

Imagine sitting in a classroom, trying to concentrate after wheezing and coughing all night with uncontrolled asthma. Think about the frustration of squinting to see blurry words in a textbook without the glasses you need to read. How can we expect children with problems like these to do well in school?

This is why Children’s Health Fund pioneered an innovative solution 25 years ago -- a fully equipped “doctor’s office on wheels” that brings essential care directly to vulnerable kids and families facing hard times.

Today, our fleet of mobile medical clinics brings compassionate medical professionals into the heart of the most underserved rural and urban communities across the country. We make good health possible for thousands of at-risk children, giving them the chance to learn and grow.

Our children will take care of the world tomorrow, but only if we take care of them today.

Make the choice to join with Children’s Health Fund, reaching out to the children who are often forgotten. Sign-up to see how you can be part of our mission and share in the successes of the children we serve.
