The Adi Grace Supportive Care Fund

The Hummingbird Program started the Adi Grace Supportive Care Fund in memory of Adisyn Grace Cavey. This fund helps Hummingbird patients and families with some care expenses that are not covered by health insurance.

The Adi Grace Supportive Care Fund is available to all Hummingbird patients. Family income and insurance coverage do not matter.

Please call 717-531-3558 to learn more if your child is a Hummingbird patient.

Bereavement resources

The death of a child is devastating, and the grief journey for bereaved parents is long and many times lonely. The Hummingbird Program provides grief and bereavement support to parents and families in various settings. We offer:

  • Support groups twice per year (spring and fall)
  • Special one-night workshops on different topics, such as Preparing for the Holiday Season (early November)
  • Individual, couple and family sessions
