Christ's Starfish Foundation is a 501(c) (3) Christian organization that helps hurting children and their families children at fifteen hospitals in four states including Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, and Indiana. We do this by providing two services. First we provide support to the child life specialists for all of the hospitals we serve. One of the biggest ways we do this is to provide Christmas presents to the children who are in the hospital on Christmas Day.

We also provide support to the families of children with non-cancer illnesses. The hospitalization of a child requires that at least one parent be with them during their stay. This often results in missed work and no pay. Examples of expenses we may help with would include rent or mortgage payments, electric bills, phone bills, gas expense, and food.
