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.

Have you heard? Our Beach 5k has gone virtual this year and here's why we want YOU to participate!

Meet Kathryn, one of Believe In Tomorrow's sweetest little girls who traveled all the way from Riverside, Illinois to enjoy a fun-filled week at our Children's House By the Sea with her sisters, brother, and parents!

"This was our first trip since the pandemic began so we were definitely fearful about traveling. But we felt that Believe in Tomorrow had our best interest at heart and would keep us safe. Our trip was better than we imagined! We were able to find a variety of fun things to do while still feeling safe. We watched our kids play happily together for hours and let our worries float away on the waves."

Every registration and donation toward our Virtual Beach 5K benefits so many children like Kathryn who look forward to a week where they can focus on what they do best - just being a kid!

Last week, Gracie and her family, traveled from Ohio to stay at The Children’s House On The Bay. They were able to soak up the sunshine and enjoy their respite away from the stress of everyday life. They also shared some pictures from their trip with us. We love seeing these smiling faces!

Gracie’s Mom said-
“Thank you for hosting us at the House on the Bay this summer. Being able to step away from day to day life and simply focus on making memories with each other was just what we needed. The boat ride Wayne arranged was so much fun and seeing wild horses during it was a bucket list check for Gracie, our oldest; but most of all our 3 kids enjoyed just being by the water and dining on the deck together. Throughout the week illness took a backseat to childhood and the peace we saw in our children's eyes had been long missing. The pace was perfect, we were able to distance ourselves from others, and we could not have felt safer or better about our choice to travel. Gracie did end up needing medical care during our stay (though not related to COVID as was our concern with travel at this time) and we were thankful to be close enough to access it! Thank you (and your donors) for the hospitality and kindness shown. From check in to departure our experience was a breath of fresh air.”

THANK YOU to all of our donors and volunteers who make these trips possible!
