Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Through our Patient Support Program we offer treatment for children and young adults in need of medical care, in some cases life threatening or terminal. Mainly pediatric cancer patients in all of Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico does not have a reliable Goverment health care plan for low income families. Because of this, most doctors, hospitals, pharmacies, specialists and health care providers do not accept the government health plan therefore leaving these families unprotected for their health care. We cover (pay) all medical service and treatment to these children so that they can receive specialized medical treatment for their condition. We offer our services paying for medical treatment and services in Puerto Rico Children's Hospital in Bayamon, San Jorge Children's Hospital, Pediatric division of Auxilio Mutuo, Go GoGo Pediatric Institute an private pediatric offices. We are working on alliances with other hospitals. We have over 1700 pediatric patients who benefit from our services

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

That no child goes without receiving the medical attention everyone deserves. And to provide a better way of life to them during their illness and recuperation period. We want more people to know about our services and to know that we are here to help.

We are proud to say that we recently established an alliance with 3 other pediatric hospitals in Puerto Rico therefore we now offer our services paying for medical treatment and services in 4 hospitals. Puerto Rico Children's Hospital in Bayamon, San Jorge Children's Hospital, Pediatric division of Auxilio Mutuo, Go GoGo Pediatric Institute, Hospital Pediatrico (State hospital) and are working on alliances with other hospitals. We have more than 1700 pediatric patients who benefit from our services.

These alliances also provides us with access to more pediatric specialists and sub specialists which are scarce in Puerto Rico.

Our goal in San Jorge Children's Foundation is to be able to provide help to a larger pediatric population by at least a 10% increase of new patients per year. All funds and donations received are used to help pay medical services and strive to help more children in need within one year. We are also offering our services to other life threatening illnesses.

We have created new alliances with United Way and other NPO's to make sure that children in adoption homes and shelters are in good health and receive any medical treatment or service they might require. We currently offer help and pay medical services to 12 shelters and homes for children.

During COVID we've been offering assistance and paying medical services even while working remotely. Covering online medical consults as well. We received a donation from Old Navy and have been distributing clothes and accessories to families. We are giving our participant families $50 gift cards from Walmart as well as face shields, masks and PPE equipment. These donations of PPE material are also being distributed between our medical providers.

As mentioned before, we have established alliances with 4 additional hospitals that attend the pediatric population in Puerto Rico. We are proud to say that we recently established an alliance with 3 other pediatric hospitals in Puerto Rico therefore we now offer our services paying for medical treatment and services in 4 hospitals. Puerto Rico Children's Hospital in Bayamon, San Jorge Children's Hospital, Pediatric division of Auxilio Mutuo, Go GoGo Pediatric Institute, Hospital Pediatrico (State hospital) and are working on alliances with other hospitals. We have more than 1800 pediatric patients who benefit from our services.
These alliances also provides us with access to more pediatric specialists and sub specialists which are scarce in Puerto Rico.

We are also partners of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals which provides us with National partners such as Costco, Walmart, Sam's, IHOP, Ace Hardware, Chico's, Panda Express and others. We just filmed a commercial with Benicio del Toro, known for his work in Star Wars, Traffic, Sicario, and many other award winning movies.
We have an active TV, radio and social media campaign which has helped create awareness of what we do but more specially, who we do it for. We have an excellent reputation with our donors and the community.

We've created an alliance with another children's hospital in Puerto Rico, therefore expanding our pediatric specialists and sub specialists and reaching more children and youngsters who dont have the monetary means to pay for specialized medical treatment.

We already started creating alliances with other foundations to provide more help where needed. We offer our services to different foster homes and have more medical providers.
We have an excellent Board of Directors with excellent positions in the Workforce and the community.
One of our directors is the GM for NBC Telemundo and they provide us with PSA's on a daily basis, as well as with the #1 local newspaper where they run on a daily basis as well. Our board president is an Walmart executive and provides us with alternatives to do fundraising in all their stores, becoming our #1 donor.

Every single year we help more children and increase our patients. We closed 2019 with 1,463 active patients to whom we paid medical services and treatment, 471 who were new to the Foundation.
The Foundation provided provided 7044 services or treatments in the amount of $500,000+

During COVID everything was affected, but we still provided services through virtual medicine, to 751 patients and had 171 new patients that will receive our services until they turn 21

We are very active in the CFC Campaign, as well as filling out proposals to get more funding to help more children and perhaps add programs to service this population.

COVID has affected us all, but we know we'll surpass this and get back to normal in the very near future.

  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
Policies and processes
