Community Support Helps Miracles for Kids Help Families for 20 Years

Miracles for Kids, an organization that provides support to children with life-threatening illnesses, celebrates 20 years of community support and partnerships

IRVINE, Calif.  (March 4, 2024) – The only way an organization can continue helping others and serving its mission is through support from others. Individuals, businesses, and organizations in the community choosing to support the non-profit charity help make it possible for them to continue their work. Miracles for Kids is celebrating 20 years of community support that has helped them continue their mission of helping children with life-threatening illnesses.

“The ongoing support we get from the community is everything,” explains Autumn Strier, co-founder of Miracles for Kids. “We could not do what we do without the support we have received over the last 20 years. We are grateful for so much support that we have had the opportunity to help so many families.”

Launched in 2004, Miracles for Kids was created to help families who are struggling due to their child’s life-threatening illness or condition. Over the last 20 years, they have helped families by helping them pay essential bills, providing pro-bono medical care for uninsured family members, providing long-term housing assistance, delivering monthly baskets and boxes to help supply families with basic food needs, and hosting wellness activities for families. 

They have helped over 2,100 families in the last 20 years. Their efforts have been possible through donations from over 10,000 donors and 30 corporate partnerships. They also host successful fundraising events throughout the year. Some of their standout supporters include:

  • Assistance League of Orange – Since 2018, they have been a community partnership that brings volunteers to Miracle Manor twice monthly. The volunteers help provide dinner, activities, and cleanup days to those using the housing program. Every summer, they give the families catered lunches, face painting, balloon animals, ice cream, etc. During the pandemic, they delivered groceries to families and even provided emergency rental assistance to families. They are at the core of most of our programming at Miracle Manor.
  • Ashmore Construction is an instrumental donor for the operations of Miracle Manor, Basket of Miracles, and storage for our organization. Based out of Orange, Calif., they have donated countless hours to assist with property maintenance and repairs at Miracle Manor to ensure our families a safe and stable living environment. Every year, they donate to provide Halloween costumes to every child, treats for the families, and decorate the property for the holidays. For Basket of Miracles, they have donated time and workforce to help transport donations and supplies for our events. They store large donations for us in their warehouse, where it would have been a significant cost for us to rent storage.
  • National Charity League – They have been a pillar of support, from delivering food and essential household items throughout Orange County with the Basket and Box of Miracles programs to heart-warming holiday decorating, family movie nights, game nights, and cleanup efforts at Miracle Manor to celebrating birthdays with critically-ill children at Birthday Bash of Miracles and summer Surf & Paddle camp. In addition, volunteers donate wellness kits, birthday goodies, and kindness cards. Miracles for Kids proudly stands hand-in-hand with five esteemed chapters of the National Charity League – Orange/Villa Park, North Tustin, Capistrano Coast, Laguna Beach, and Saddleback Valley.
  • Lion’s Heart – The bond with this organization is one of camaraderie and compassion. High school volunteers dedicate time throughout the year to help our families in various ways, from Miracle Manor family board game nights, which foster shared moments of friendly competition, engaging in fun outdoor sports, doodling chalk masterpieces or simply sharing a laugh to providing invaluable assistance with setup, support, and deliveries at Basket of Miracles. Dedicated Lion’s Heart volunteers are united in their efforts to serve our families and make a difference.

“We thank everyone who has supported our efforts through financial donations, volunteering, and more,” added Strier. “What we do is truly a community effort, and we are humbled to have had such amazing support for two decades. We look forward to many more years of being able to help people.”

Headquartered in Orange County, California, Miracles for Kids extends its helping hand throughout California, alleviating the financial strain on families facing challenging times. By providing financial support, shelter, counseling, and meeting essential needs, they have brought long-term stability to over 2,100 families. Miracles for Kids relies on volunteers, financial contributors, corporate partnerships, and community programs.
