Healing the Children Northeast, incorporated in 1985, is a 501 (c) (03) non-profit organization based in New Milford, CT. We are committed to arranging free surgical, dental and medical treatment for children in need. Children are provided services through three basic programs:
- Medical Teams Abroad Program – Reaches across national boundaries to provide our world’s children with desperately needed medical care. We arrange teams of volunteer doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals to go to less developed countries where they provide medical treatments and surgeries for children in need. Our missions have been to Ecuador, Colombia, Nicaragua, Peru, and Thailand.
- International Inbound Program – Brings children from developing countries to the United States where we match the needs of the child with a volunteer doctor and/or hospital with that specialty. We arrange for travel to the U.S. and visas for the child and parent. A volunteer host family is located and will open their home for the child and parent while the child is receiving medical treatment in the U.S.
- Domestic Kids Program – Provides medical treatment and assistance to children in our local communities who are unable to get these services due to a lack of financial resources or medical insurance. We have arranged for children to receive services like dental, medical, and surgical care, medical equipment, prescription drugs, physical therapy, speech therapy, etc.
Healing the Children – Northeast relies on donations to help the children around the corner and around the world. For every $1.00 donated to our organization, we are able to provide more than $27.00 worth of donated medical care. The need is great and each day, more and more parents contact us to help their children.
