A Moment of Magic Foundation is a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a mission to improve the quality of life of vulnerable and underserved children and inspire them to be brave, strong, and fearless through fun and engaging social wellness activities.
Every 60 seconds a child is in need of medical care. Traumatic experiences can initiate strong emotions and physical reactions that can persist long after the event.
While many possible coping mechanisms exist, the most prominent - and powerful - in childhood is play. Medically vulnerable children demonstrate a greater need to play because of the stress generated by unfamiliar environments, unpredictable schedules, painful experiences, and mobility restrictions due to illness or treatment.
We create fun, empowering experiences for children that decisively contribute to their emotional, mental well-being, self-confidence, and self-esteem.
A Moment of Magic Foundation serves as a positive resource for children and families seeking social and emotional support. We address the mental health and wellness needs of the community by offering social wellness youth programs to underserved children.
We understand the social determinants that affect a child’s mental health and wellness, and our organization works in partnership with families, hospitals, college students, to ensure children equitably receive the resources they need to become well and thrive.
"My daughter has been through so much with cancer and now Covid-19 and these visits have lifted her and made her see the magic in day to day life.
As her parents, we also see the commitment and beauty of your volunteers and how they are also lifted by these experiences. We are so grateful for all of our visits."
