Our Mission

Exceptional Care for Children (ECC) improves the lives of medically fragile children and their families through skilled nursing, transitional and palliative care. We are a haven for healing fragile bodies when improvement is possible and a refuge for nurturing vulnerable spirits when a cure is unattainable.







Did you know that when you donate stock, you avoid the tax on the gain while deducting 100% of the value of the contribution? When you give stock, you may earn 2-3x the tax savings vs. donating cash. It’s a win-win for you and us. And now it’s fast, safe and easy to do.

Exceptional Care for Children has partnered with DonateStock to enable our supporters to make stock donations in 10 minutes or less. Our DonateStock page enables you to donate stock from your brokerage directly to our account through a secure portal, making the gifting process fast, safe and easy.

Due to COVID-19, we are currently restricting all gently-used clothing and toy donations.


We’ve partnered up with B Generous to allow you to donate to ECC without stressing your bank account.

What is Giving Tuesday and when is it?

The next Giving Tuesday is on November 29, 2022. Giving Tuesday is a national campaign occurring on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It was established as a way to begin the giving season and encourage people to contribute charitable donations to nonprofits.

What are some Giving Tuesday participation ideas?

  • Donate: Donate to a charity or nonprofit of your choice on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. If you care about several charities, choose your favorite and donate to all of them! Donate to Exceptional Care for Children.
  • Watch our new family testimonial video: We sat down with a few of our families to gather their personal experience with ECC and how they feel about our upcoming expansion project. Watch now.
  • Encourage others: After you give, fundraise or volunteer, encourage others to get involved by sharing your participation using the popular hashtag #GivingTuesday.
  • Fundraise: When you ask friends and family to help raise money for a charity, you increase the amount you would’ve given on your own! Start a Facebook Fundraiser for Exceptional Care for Children.
  • Volunteer: Volunteer your time with a charity. Volunteers are extremely valuable for helping to complete work. Some nonprofits offer virtual volunteer opportunities, too. See volunteering opportunities with Exceptional Care for Children.
