Mitchell’s Fund Family Emergency Fund
Covers expenses like mortgage payments, utility bills, funeral expenses and counseling services for families in the hospital for a life-threatening illness and gives support that relieves financial stress so that parents can focus on caring for their sick child.
Counselors at St. Jude Affiliate Clinic at Novant Health
The counselors see more than 200 children each year, providing art, play and talk therapy. They help children navigate the shock of diagnosis, pain
and anxiety during treatment and, in some cases, help children prepare for end of life.
Investment in Research
Our investment in research follows recommendations from the Leading on Opportunity Task Force Report. To date, Mitchell’s Fund has invested in the report Navigating The Maze: An Assessment of Mental Health Resources for Children and Adolescents in Charlotte-Mecklenburg and the Charlotte Resilience Project.
