Hospital Support Program

What is the Hospital Support Program? 
SMILE’s Hospital Support Program provides support to registered SMILE families that have children at SickKids hospital with critical illnesses and/or disabilities. Our aim is to provide social, emotional, resource, and financial support all in a culturally responsive and tailored way to the needs of our registered families. 
Support We Provide

SMILE will provide support to children with critical illnesses/disabilities and their families through...

  1. Parent and Caregiver Wellness Packages and Services - parents will receive comfort items, self-care items, and more all tailored to their needs and meal deliveries, coffee visits, arts and crafts, transportation to appointments, etc.

  2. Child/Youth Wellness Packages - each child/youth will receive care packages containing comfort items and therapeutic activities catered to their specific needs and interests.

  3. Food Deliveries and Parking Allowances - meal deliveries, coffee visits, transportation costs and parking allowances will be provided to families to ensure their hospital stays are as comfortable as possible.

  4. Resource/advocacy support - assistance with access and service navigation, including help with funding paperwork, etc.

  5. Financial Assistance - families will have access to SMILE’s Scholarship rounds, where families can receive funding towards mental health therapy services, respite services, therapeutic tools, and more.
