What is Sprout Foundation's mission?

The general & initial nature of the business by this not-for-profit corporation is to put together care packages to decorate hospital rooms for children whom have been admitted to long term care whose families are also financially unable to do this for them. By doing so The Sprout Foundation aims bring much needed joy to the child’s mental well-being which in turn aids in physical healing. Mental wellness has been proven to scientifically play an enormous role in the physical healing of humans. Elevated moods decrease stress levels and allow the body to help restore itself.
Children are often faced with life threatening situations that require them to be in a hospital for weeks, months, even years. Sometimes the nicest of hospital rooms can just feel like, well, a hospital room. Even for adults this can be very depressing, so you can only imagine the effect it has a on child. Having their room decorated to possibly include some colorful lights or their favorite superhero on a comforter set has an incredible impact on their attitude towards getting well. Many families across the country who are struggling to make ends meet with their own life costs now have the enormous burden of added medical bills and stress with their child in the hospital and just cannot afford or do not have the means to add to these positive items to their child’s hospital room for them. This is where The Sprout Foundation and generous donations from our donors change lives.

Thoughtful Urgency
We recognize the human toll of suffering children without hope and the urgency needed to address it, while simultaneously affirming that long-term, comprehensive solutions are the goal. Acknowledging and working to aid these children can be complex. The work we do must be predicated upon grappling with history in an effort to create a better future.
Interdependency and Collaboration
We recognize that advancing the quality of the care for these children cannot be done in isolation. Solving this issue requires each of us to leverage and share our unique perspectives, expertise, and insights. The success of this work requires us to rely on each other, both institutionally and individually. We honor that this takes time, and requires trust building and shared risk, in service to the mission.
