WAYS WE HELP
When you or your child is newly diagnosed with a chronic illness you have many different emotions. Along with those emotions you also have questions and concerns. Some of those concerns may involve your normal “every day” responsibilities such as what’s for dinner, walking the dog, and paying your rent on time.
The hope of our organization is to be able to reach families who either are the parent or have a child with a critical or chronic illness. We want to help lesson the burden of the “every day” responsibilities and allow the families to focus more on the medical needs of their loved one.

As part of our mission, we provide temporary financial assistance to families who have a child or a parent facing ongoing medical issues. We understand that every family situation is unique, therefore the needs and requests are always different. As part of the Patient/ Referral request for funds, we ask each family to state their most important and immediate needs. For some, it may be a loss of income and need for rent or utilities to be paid. For others, it may just be the extra cost of transportation and hotel for out of town hospital stay. It is our goal to never send funds directly to a family, but to pay the requested expense directly or provide a gas or food card.
Areas of Assistance
- Utility Bills (water, electric/gas, phone, garbage)
- Car payment
- Gas/food card
After speaking with numerous families that have had or still have a child battling an illness, we determined that not every need is financial. Because of travel to hospitals, overnight stays or long term treatments many day to day activities we take for granted go uncompleted and add additional pressure on the family. Armed with facts of real life, we decided to gather individuals and local businesses willing to donate their time and resources to provide non financial support to families in need. These volunteers are ready to act when called upon to make life easy on families in need. Lawn care companies, firemen, church groups, and professional cleaning companies have committed themselves to be great community partners in our endeavor!
- Pet care
- Lawn Care
- House cleaning
- Pastoral care/counseling
Our final goal with this organization is Advocacy. In the Bowling Green, KY area there are very few facilities that focus on the benefits and services dedicated specifically to children. One of our long term goals is to show there is a need, locally, to provide ongoing treatment services, education, and support focusing exclusively on children.
Once the initial shock wears off from learning that you or a loved one is going to face some medical challenges you realize that help is needed.
We accept referrals from social workers, pastors, medical professionals, school counselors, families, and friends. Anyone can take that first step and ask us for assistance. We know that when someone is going through any kind of struggle, going through it with someone else makes it a little more bearable.
Life's Better Together is here for you. We are here to help with "every day" responsibilities, and are committed to being available to help when it is needed. We want you to be able to focus on what's most important- taking care of yourself or loved one and getting them better.
