Established in 1997, The Grace Children’s Foundation (TGCF) is a United States based 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to improving the lives of children in need globally through TGCF’s Children’s Resource Exchange Center (CREC) model with an emphasis on Healthcare—medical, surgical, rehabilitative care and groundbreaking research, treatments and cures.
After two decades of front-line experience, with a focus on connecting children to Healthcare, The Grace Children’s Foundation (TGCF) has gained an in-depth understanding of the medical needs of children globally. We have also learned about the major challenges in the coordination and delivery of vital resources faced by people and organizations ready to help the most marginalized children—what works, what doesn’t—and the optimal means for meeting many of those needs with sustainable impact.
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 well-being.
Children’s Resource Exchange Center Network
TGCF has been working for two decades through the Children’s Resource Exchange Center (CREC) model with partners and children from North and South America, Asia, Africa, the Caribbean, Europe and, most recently, the Middle East, connecting children to pro bono and subsidized care on a case-by-case basis. Now, as we continue our journey in the age of digital transformation, our goal is to disrupt the industry by systematizing and accelerating global access and delivery of pediatric healthcare. The CREC digital platform is envisioned as the go-to source for connecting children in need to people and organizations ready to help them, scaling the solution to the magnitude of the problem.
