The

Charities

To save the lives of children with heart disease, Children's HeartLink partners with organizations to train medical teams, provide education and transform health care in underserved parts of the world. Last year we trained over 4,000 medical professionals in Brazil, China, India, Malaysia and Vietnam, and served over 171,000 children. One in 100 children is born with a heart defect. Only one in 10 has access to care. Children's HeartLink is working to change that. 

Our mission is to offer care and support to children and young adults with a shortened life expectancy, and their families who love them. The Crescent Cove Respite & Hospice Home for Kids, located in Brooklyn Center, MN, is the first of its kind in the Midwest, dedicated solely to the special needs of kids with life-threatening conditions, and just the third in the U.S. It is a joyful and vibrant home-away-from-home for short stays (respite) and as a space for sacred, end-of-life care.

We, in partnership with our community, provide a comfortable and caring home-away-from-home that supports keeping families together and reduces stress during a child's serious illness or injury. We operate four locations in the Twin Cities that offer complimentary meals, lodging and support services to more than 6,600 families each year.

Informational Webinars

Hospice Isn't Just About Dying

September 2nd

6:00 pm

Register

When we hear the word hospice, we immediately shift our thoughts to death and dying, but that isn't all that hospice means. Hospice is about living the best days of your life at the end of life and can be a powerful and meaningful experience for the individual and those who love them. Hospice and palliative care go hand in hand and how we use both of these with children is vastly different than with adults. 

Keeping Families Close

September 5th

6:00 pm

Register

From premature births to genetic diseases and unexpected trauma, childhood illness and injury is a family affair. A family’s financial, social, emotional, and geographical well-being are impacted.  Learn about influential factors that improve a family’s reality to keep focus on recovery rates in children.  

Why All Parents Need Respite

September 8th

6:00 pm

Register

Respite is defined as "a short period of rest or relief from something difficult or unpleasant." At Crescent Cove, we believe that all parents need respite. Our families go through the unimaginable -- they are faced with a shortened life expectancy for their child and their days are often filled with complex medical needs, doctors appointments, medications, and a lack of sleep.  Why all parents need respite is a good reminder that in order to care for others, parents need to care for themselves too and sometimes that means a few days away. Learn more about why self-care is so critical when being a caregiver to any person of any age.

Making Children with Heart Disease Visible

September 10th

6:00 pm

Register

Congenital heart defects are the birth defect that cause the most deaths. In high-income countries, most children born with heart defects are diagnosed and treated. But children with heart defects are not visible and not treated in most parts of the world. Children's HeartLink works to improve access to medical care for children born with heart defects in other parts of the world.
