Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Reviv aims to support every member of the family of a child that has received a life altering or life limiting diagnosis. We aim to do this by making sure basic needs are met, despite the financial hurdle of hospital admissions and treatment. We aim to address the food insecurity that happens when a parent has to take off work to care of a sick child, and also the price of meals in the hospital to ensure a parent is able to worry about the child, not their next meal. We also aim to address the need for a consist support system both in the hospital and once at home. Every family needs to have someone that can help them with the transition home.

Charting impact

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

Our main goals are to ensure every family refereed to us by childrens hospital is met with their own individual support worker that allows them a safe person to speak to about needs they are experiencing. By supporting this family we hope to lessen the return to inpatient probability that occurs when a family does not have adequate support.

Our strategies are to recruit more volunteers trained in family support to ensure they are well versed in what these families may need.
Also, we are actively working to establish and strengthen community partnerships to grow the support system of these families to those in the community as well.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.

Maria Dunlap

The founder of Reviv, Maria Dunlap, and her husband welcomed their daughter, Vivian, into the world on July 24, 2012. A short 59 days later they held Vivian for the last time. During those days, the Dunlaps received endless support from family and friends: meals every night, someone to stay with Viv once a week at the hospital so they could rejuvenate and always a shoulder to cry on. They were able to be fully present for Viv, learning her care, loving her for a lifetime in those 59 days.\n\nThey quickly realized that their support was the exception. Maria left the hospital with empty arms but a heart full of the need to do something. Reviv meets families where they are and works with them and the child’s care team to give personalized practical and emotional care when their child is diagnosed with a life-limiting/altering illness. Reviv focuses care in four key levels of support: Family and Sibling, Hospital, Home and Bereavement.
