About Children’s Flight of Hope
Established in 1991, the mission of Children’s Flight of Hope is to provide free air transportation to and from medical facilities for seriously ill or injured children who – due to medical, financial or logistical reasons – cannot travel to their destinations by any other method.Children’s Flight of Hope offers our services at no cost to children between birth and eighteen years of age and serves families regardless of race, religious affiliation or medical diagnosis. We offer our services to children and families within the eastern region of the United States, keeping our support to a 600-nautical-mile radius from Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina. Lack of transportation to the treatment facilities, which can be located far from their homes, prevents many seriously ill and injured children from receiving the specialized medical care they need although it may be readily available. We strive to take away the worries associated with transportation so the family can focus on what’s most important: the health of their child. For more information, visit www.cfoh.org.
