Family Links is a child-and family-centered support program at Wolfson Children’s Hospital made possible by The Jim & Tabitha Furyk Foundation, addressing health-related social conditions that impact the quality of children’s wellness. Where children live, play, and learn has a far greater influence on their long-term health outcomes than traditional medical care. For this reason, Family Links aims to assist families by identifying the social needs impacting their health, expanding access to community resources, and empowering family decision-making that leads to better health outcomes for children. From food insecurity, transportation, and housing/rent issues, to employment support, childcare, legal assistance and access to basic household goods and supplies, Family Links is here to address these crucial needs and promote our children’s health and well-being throughout the community.View Website

Our chapter is its own 501(c)(3) and committed to granting the wishes of children in our local communities. Money raised stays locally to fund wishes to local kids battling a critical illness. We do not receive government funding and rely 100% on public support.
We have granted more than 6,000 wishes as a chapter since September 1994. Our chapter’s first wish was to 13-year-old Verena who wanted to meet Dolly Parton. Wishes generally fall into 5 wish types: I wish to go, I wish to meet, I wish to have, I wish to give. Our trained volunteers work with the child to determine their wish, which can be anything within their imagination! Wishes can be anything from a child wishing to be a superhero for the day, visiting their favorite destination or theme park, having a room-redo, going on a shopping spree, meeting their favorite celebrity or athlete, or having their own playhouse, above-ground pool, or gaming system.
Join us in helping to change the world, one child at a time!View Website
