California's only non-profit pediatric home health agency.
Coastal Kids comprehensive services also support patients’ emotional well-being. Our licensed clinical social worker offers various forms of therapies and counseling to help children and families cope with their illness. Counseling options are tailored to fit the needs of each individual child, teen or adult with options including individual therapy, play therapy and art therapy. Our counselors are experienced in medical anxiety, depression, social issues, loss and grief, and much more.
Coastal Kids was founded based on the idea that children deserve high-quality home health care and that this service could be offered with very low overhead. Although the majority of the agency's patients are from families living at or below the poverty line, we are proud to say that Coastal Kids Home Care has never turned a child or family away for inability to pay—and we never want to. Thanks to our grants, event sponsorships, private donations, and tireless hours from staff, Coastal Kids has provided more than 64,000 in-home visits to 8,700 children.
