CAPES

Our Heroes endure so many trials during their journeys and having a tangible piece of personalized bravery helps. Our kids can battle anything!

Through the help of many local loving and talented quilters our dream began to come true and Heroes all over they began receiving their capes. We are forever grateful for our "Cape Fairy's" that provide bravery for our kids during their scariest moments in the hospital or traveling for appointments. 

HOSPITAL VISITS

Being in the hospital undergoing going treatments, having surgery or fighting a medical battle is hard!

 

Staff and trained volunteers with background checks will bring a hospital bag to your Hero full of Hope. Let us know when your scheduled visit is and we will do our best to come by based on availability of staff and volunteers

PARENTS NIGHT OUT

Parents! If you are interested in participating click here for more information. 

We all know as parents that we put ourselves last, and we have learned that families seem to function better if parents have had a break and feel supported.

Wichitas Littlest Heroes hosts Moms Day Out and Dad's Day Out where our parents can come together and share their journey's in a fun environment! What a difference a fun day out with friends can make!

FINANCIAL 

ASSISTANCE

Financial strain is one of the biggest obstacles our Hero families face in raising a child with a life threatening medical condition/s. Many resources will NOT cover prescriptions, medical equipment, utility bills, house or rental payments etc. 

Wichita's Littlest Heroes seeks to fill in the gaps of local resources by giving families what they need most, cash assistance to fill in the typical missing income because of medical diagnosis. 

This assistance is made possible because of

Beach Family Foundation

and donors like you!Thank you for making this program possible for sick kid families!

BEADS OF

COURAGE

Their FREE Beads of Courage journey begins when each child is first given a length of string and beads that spell out their first name. Then, colorful beads, each representing a different treatment milestone are given to the child by their professional health care provider to add to their Beads of Courage collection throughout their treatment. 

On behalf of Wichitas Littlest Heroes and sponsors we provide art-therapy  in Honor of Addison Adams and all our Hero Angels.

They will never be forgotten. 

The tangible art therapy tool gives our Heroes the opportunity to share with other's where their medical diagnosis journey has taken them!

CHRISTMAS ASSISTANCE

In the last 3 years WLH has adopted out over 160 families to generous community sponsors and individuals who provide "Hope for the Holidays". Without our giving community many WLH families would go without and we are grateful to all for creating such a big IMPACT!

 Every October, families who will truly be struggling to afford Christmas for their family have the opportunity to communicate that need to WLH. WLH does their best to find families and businesses to adopt those families for Christmas. No guarantees but we do our best. We will post an application for Christmas Assistance in mid-October.
