Areas of Impact
COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund
Donations to help us meet the most urgent needs as they arise. These essentials include technology, pathology testing, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), supplies and increased housekeeping to assure a safe and clean environment.
Technology to enable access for patients, families, clinicians and team members to maintain uninterrupted communications while observing the “Safer at Home” order in Los Angeles. The surge of demand for remote access requires immense resources.
Innovation and Telehealth
Telehealth resources are being deployed to provide continuity for families who are unable to visit CHLA in person. Funds support these new pathways for telehealth, AI COVID screening bots and other innovation activities to support the COVID-19 response.
Lodging for Patient Families
Hotel vouchers or funds to purchase hotel vouchers for families from out of town whose children need critical treatments and procedures. These families usually rely on housing options that are currently unavailable due to current restrictions.
Funds to underwrite individually packaged meals for clinical team members, including those in the Pathology Lab and staff who are working extended hours to deliver urgent care to patients. Alternatively, donations from restaurants or caterers to provide the meals directly are helpful.
