Our Newest Beach Respite Project

Project temporarily delayed due to COVID

The Believe In Tomorrow Children’s Foundation is a national leader in pediatric respite and hospital housing services for critically ill children. Since 1986, Believe In Tomorrow has provided over 900,000 overnight accommodations to families from every state in the U.S. Our mission is to provide the highest standards of service and hospitality to create unique healing environments, where families can renew their spirits and refresh their energies during their child’s battle with cancer and other life threatening illnesses.

Believe In Tomorrow Military Pediatric Initiative
Serving Families That Serve Our Country
For over 15 years Believe In Tomorrow’s Military Initiative has supported our nations armed service families when one of their children has a life threatening medical crisis. We prioritize their access to exceptional respite and hospital housing that is a sanctuary from the stress and fatigue of their child’s lengthy medical treatments. Armed service families with a critically ill child often have a particularly difficult time. Treatment options frequently take families far from their base of support. During those times, our services are ready and waiting for families when they need it the most. Since it’s inception in 2005, the Believe In Tomorrow Military Initiative has provided over 40,000 overnight accommodations to armed service families.
