    Keeping families together
    during a child's illness
The Believe In Tomorrow Children's Foundation provides exceptional hospital and respite housing services to critically ill children and their families. We believe in keeping families together during a child’s medical crisis, and that the gentle cadence of normal family life has a powerful influence on the healing process.

What if your son was in the hospital, but you were unable to be by his side?

What if your daughter was sick, and her medical expenses had ruled out any chance of a family getaway for years?

Since 1982, Believe In Tomorrow has been helping families answer these difficult questions. Whether it’s a warm welcome in the middle of the night, or an exciting adventure that inspires hope in children battling for their lives, we have come to understand what it is these families need most.

Believe In Tomorrow
It is with great pride that we introduce you to Mrs. Mamare, lovingly known here at Believe In Tomorrow as the ‘Starfish Lady’. Mamare first came to us in 2009 when she volunteered with her Elder Hostel at The Children’s House at Johns Hopkins. Since then, she has generously donated countless hours of her time and knitting skills to create beautiful, one-of-a-kind pieces for the children in our programs. Over the years, she has hand crafted hundreds of starfish pillows that are placed in every room at The Children’s House at Johns Hopkins and at each of our respite facilities. Each pillow takes eight hours to make! The amount of time, dedication, and love that is put into each pillow is what makes them so special and what makes Mamare so special to us! Her service to the children and families in our programs is truly inspiring and Mamare is just as unique as the beautiful pillows she creates for us. There is no way to total the amount of joy she has brought to the children we serve over the years, and we are beyond grateful to her! Below is a picture of Mamare with one of her pillows and another of Kate, a young lady in our programs, posing with her pillow, and a huge smile on her face. ... See MoreSee Less
