WHY WE EXIST

Millions of children are suffering from war, poverty, neglect and disease. Many of them struggle with debilitating but treatable illnesses, traumatic injuries, mental disorders and congenital anomalies. There is a severe, often fatal gap—and a profound lack of innovation in the coordination and delivery of vital resources for children in need, their caregivers and providers. Countless people and organizations are working tirelessly to provide their care and expertise at home and on the front lines.  However, without comprehensive coordination and communication, these efforts often fail to create sustainable social impact.

CHILDREN'S RESOURCE EXCHANGE CENTER MANUAL NETWORK

For the past two decades the Foundation has been working manually through the CREC network with partners and children from North and South America, Asia, Africa and Europe and, most recently, the Middle East, connecting children to pro-bono and negotiated care on a case-by-case basis.

THE CHALLENGE

Most pressing is the lack of a system that coordinates and connects children in need to people and organizations ready to help them. The challenge is to efficiently and systematically connect any child of any background living anywhere in the world to the vital resources they require for their wellbeing.

THE STRATEGY

In order to exponentially increase the number of children, caregivers and providers served around the world, TGCF is working with innovators in healthcare and technology to transition the CREC manual network to the CREC online platform.

Goal

The Grace Children's Foundation's (TGCF) goal is simple — to connect children in need to people and organizations ready to help them. We constantly seek solutions for expanding our reach and making our impact stronger. We ask ourselves one important question: "How do we grow our reach and efficiently and systematically connect any child in need to the vital resources they need for their well-being?"

Vision

The CREC connective digital platform is envisioned as the go-to source for pediatric health care,  exponentially increasing the number of children served globally. Thank you for sharing in our vision to see the children to a place where they may elevate themselves beyond survival, to a place where they will flourish and have a chance for lives with dignity and purpose.
