Hospital Support Program
What is the Hospital Support Program?
SMILE’s Hospital Support Program provides support to families who have children in long-term stays or have recurring visits for treatments. Our aim is to provide social, emotional, and financial support in a culturally responsive and tailored way to the needs of our families.

Food and Parking Reimbursements
Meal and parking reimbursements will be provided to families to ensure their hospital stays are as comfortable as possible.
