California's only non-profit pediatric home health agency.
For qualifying children with complex medication, equipment and care needs in their homes, nurses and LVNs provide respite care in a patient’s home, addressing a child’s moment-by-moment needs while offering their regular caregivers a much-needed break. Our staff understand the challenges of having a non-family member in your home, they are trained to respect boundaries and adjust to the unique dynamics of every family.
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.
