SKIP of NY Helps New York’s Sickest Children

Over 800,000 children in New York suffer from autism, developmental disabilities, birth defects or the effects of disabling accidents. SKIP (Sick Kids [Need] Involved People) acts as a free medical concierge, connecting children to the services and equipment they need to get well and live at home rather than in hospitals or institutions.

SKIP transforms the lives of the 5,000 medically vulnerable children it helps each year. And, in an average year, SKIP saves over $50 million in public expense.

The award-winning SKIP is the only 501(c)(3) of its kind in New York. Since its launch in 1983, it has helped over 25,000 children.

  • The Way We See It – June 2020

Dear SKIP of New York Family:

In light of recent events, we at SKIP would like to take the opportunity to reaffirm that we value and embrace all our staff, families, and community members. We are collectively heartbroken and upset by the death of George Floyd and so many other unnecessary deaths and injustices felt by people of color and others. It is difficult to find the right words to adequately express our sentiments and concerns with racial injustices, health disparities and immeasurable loss of life from violence. What we can do is to offer support and to focus on hope, resiliency, and our commitment to creating an ever better environment here at SKIP and continuing to strive for a better world for all. We recognize we do not have all the answers and there is work to be done, but our hearts and ears are open, and we remain ready and willing to listen and respond.
