Find the right resources for your families, faster
As pediatric oncology social workers, you recognize that the sheer volume of information available on the Internet can overwhelm parents and that some parents don’t feel confident evaluating the credibility of this information.
At the same time, social workers carry heavier workloads than ever and may not have time to search for and evaluate resources they aren’t already familiar with.
The Hope Portal was designed to help you find the right resources, faster.
Locating trustworthy information and support resources on the Internet can be challenging and time-consuming for families, especially when they are in crisis. We are grateful to The Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles for being among the first to recognize and tackle this issue. With generous support from the Ronald McDonald Children’s Charities, the first HOPE Web Portal was launched in 2005 with the goal of organizing vetted resources to help young patients with cancer and blood diseases.
