Over 800,000 children in New York suffer from autism, developmental disabilities, birth defects or the effects of disabling accidents. SKIP (Sick Kids [Need] Involved People) acts as a free medical concierge, connecting children to the services and equipment they need to get well and live at home rather than in hospitals or institutions.
SKIP transforms the lives of the 5,000 medically vulnerable children it helps each year. And, in an average year, SKIP saves over $50 million in public expense.
The award-winning SKIP is the only 501(c)(3) of its kind in New York. Since its launch in 1983, it has helped over 25,000 children.
Please explore our website to learn more about what we do and whom we serve – the courageous children and their families who struggle each day to find a way forward.
This year marks SKIP’s 30th Annual Turkey Trot! This year we will be delivering 100 turkeys and dinners to our neediest families, in and around New York City. Your help and donations will help us make the holidays memorable for families that need it most !
