Our Mission

Serious illness can wreak havoc on family life.  Caring for the ill demands endless time and energy.  Extra curricular activities of both children and parents can go by the wayside.  Academics can falter.  Family dinners become rushed events in the back of a car.   Birthdays and holiday celebrations go unplanned.

 

We are here to help. 

 

The Piggyback Foundation of Youngstown is a volunteer-based organization dedicated to maintaining normalcy for families experiencing life-threatening illness.   We provide funding, referrals, and volunteers to help with family's emotional needs - specifically those of the children.   For more information or to apply for services, please see the links below.

About

The Piggyback Foundation of Youngstown helps families maintain a sense of normalcy during times of serious illness.  We care for the family as a whole; with particular attention given to the needs of the children. Services include tutoring, special occassion assistance, extra curriculars, and family outings.

Apply

In order to receive Piggyback services, an application must be received and approved.   Families must provide a doctor's note confirming a life-threatening illness.   The illness can be in any family member that permanently resides in the home.   Financial need is not considered. See our Services page for more information.  Or, click here for an application.

 

Donate

The Piggyback Foundation of Youngstown relies on donations to help local families maintain normalcy during times of serious illness.   The money stays in the community -benefiting citizens of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley suburbs. Donations are fully tax deductible and a receipt will be provided for tax purposes.   

Get Involved

We are always looking to partner with members of the community!   There are many opportunities to get involved as an individual, corporate sponsor, partnering agency, donor, Board of Directors member, etc.
