Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Insulin costs continue to increase. Individuals who have diabetes are using less insulin than prescribed because of the rising cost of the drug, putting themselves in danger of serious health complications. More and more families are turning to us to help their children obtain the insulin needed to stay alive.

Charting impact

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

Help A Diabetic Child's ultimate goal is to help all children and college students with diabetes recieve their necessary medical supplies and insulin to manage their diabetes properly. Diabetes is the leading cause of kidney failure, adult onset blindness, and lower limb amputations. Diabetes is also a significant cause of heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure and nerve damage. Diabetics are always at risk for these complications, which can happen early in life if their diabetes is not mangaged. **There are some 10,000 children in Collier County without health insurance. **15% of children in Collier County live in poverty. **41% of children in Collier County live in low income households. (**A Study of Child Well-Being in Collier County: http://205.186.139.237/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/Study-of-Child-Well-Being.pdf) Without appropriate supplies and insulin, these children -- children who cannot afford co-pays, deductibles, regular payments -- could face serious trauma, up to and including death. Our long term strategic goals are to: 1. Financially help children by acquiring and having delivered directly to them the needed supplies and medicine; 2. Assist children and their families navigate the emotional roller coaster when they are initially diagnosed with diabetes; 3. Provide ongoing education through multiple media in those areas of concern and interest that help children and their families accept and adapt to the demands of diabetes; 4. Match families with appropriate health professionals and health care when appropriate.

Working with endocrinologists, PCPs, school nurses, case managers, diabetes educators and reaching out to the general population, we eventually expect to help over 1000 children a year. At a current average of $500 a child, we would need more than $500,000 to accomplish our mission, administer our programs and market our services. Through a variety of fundraisers, educational products, donations and grant requests, we hope to raise the funds needed to accomplish just that.

We have established relationships with various pharmacies, doctors offices and medical suppliers to help us get the best price possible for the diabetes medical supplies, insulin and Dr. visits for the children we serve. Our goal is to help as many children as possible working and collaborating with other organizations and businesses.

Since founded in 2013 HADC has helped over 600 children mainly in SWFL receive diabetes supplies, insulin, dr. visits and services. Since then, we have made contact with notable people who are suffering with diabetes, specifically Type I to help bring awareness and help to our mission. HADC has populated our board of directors with world class experts in the field of diabetes. With more money raised, more children are helped with their immediate tangible needs being satisfied. There are thousands of children who need our help. We need to contact more referral sources but at a rate proportional to the amount we can help them. We aim to accomplished as much as we can to help more children obtain their necessary medical supplies, medicine, insulin and to pay professionals who are instrumental in helping the children through the financial, emotional and psychological transition of becoming a child with diabetes.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

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.

President

Tami Balavage

My son was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes on December 22, 2010 and I very quickly learned that there were children with this disease who were unable to get life-sustaining insulin or testing supplies for multiple reasons. We saw the need and HADC was formed to help these kids and families who were suffering.
