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.
