Children’s House at Johns Hopkins Hospital


Our Mission

Coronavirus Impact and Needs: We are asking for additional funding to support our families, who are often far from home, and due to their child’s illness cannot leave the hospital area. Gift cards to give to families and contributions to support our programs are greatly appreciated. We are preparing for a two to three month period of major instability. Make a donation on this page or visit our website to lend your support. “A Home-Away-From-Home When It’s Needed Most” The mission of The Children's House at Johns Hopkins Hospital is to provide a family-centered supportive residence for critically-ill children receiving treatment at the world-renowned Johns Hopkins Children’s Center. We believe in keeping families together in the midst of medical crisis, to reduce stress and to promote self-help and mutual support. We believe that the highest standards of service and unparalleled hospitality help to create a unique healing environment, where families find hope and comfort. Brief Background Description The Children’s House at Johns Hopkins Hospital (“TCH”) opened its doors in January 1993. More than 3,000 volunteers and over 300 companies joined forces with Believe In Tomorrow to build and furnish this “home-away-from-home” for children with serious illnesses and their families. This four-level, fifteen-bedroom facility serves as a model for pediatric hospital housing throughout the country and is located just steps away from the entrance to the hospital. TCH provides an average of 2,000 individual overnight accommodations each month, having served families from every state in the U.S. and more than 82 countries worldwide. TCH is fully equipped for families to rest and renew their energy in solace, cook and share meals together, do laundry, and enjoy recreation with others in a playroom, a library, TV rooms and the newly renovated, state-of-the-art video game room. The primary population is families of both inpatients and outpatients from the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center. All families are referred by a hospital professional, usually a social worker, a doctor or nurse, and stay at TCH free of charge. Programs and Services TCH provides a wide variety of programs and services to residents. Our goal is to continuously evaluate the needs of the children and families that we serve, and to create additional programs and services to meet those needs more effectively in the years to come. Highlighted below is a sampling of programs and services provided this year. Volunteers arranged a variety of activities for children and families including parties, movie night, arts and crafts and special entertainment nights. Volunteer van drivers transported families to local adventures including the National Aquarium, the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore, the Maryland Science Center and local sporting events. TCH provided complimentary passes to many of these locations. Volunteer groups such as alumni associations, civic groups, and professional organizations donated their time and talents by participating in the “Family Suppers Program.” This program allows volunteers to provide an evening meal and then interact with the residents in a friendly setting. Dinners were provided almost every night, with a record number of dinners scheduled this past year. We also developed a Sunday Brunch Program and instituted a weekday Breakfast Program. Volunteer groups and individuals also assisted in many day-to-day operations of the house including: checking families in and out of the house, answering the phones, cleaning, maintenance, providing transportation to families using the company-owned van, and other essential activities. Three very popular volunteer endeavors include homemade quilts (Project Linus), therapy dog visits and seated massages.

Our Story

behind the scenes at Gaingive

We Believe

At Gaingive, we believe in introducing people to a lifestyle of giving in a more natural, less invasive way; where people don’t feel forced or pressured to give, but rather give in a way that doesn’t cost them anything. 

We believe that once hearts are open and actively giving through ordinary day to day activities like shopping, the joy and habit of giving spreads to other areas of life. Not only do we believe it, but we are blessed to see it happen every day, and we’re obsessively passionate about it!

Mission

Our mission is not only to help people achieve the joy and fulfillment that giving brings to our lives, but also to bless those on the receiving end more abundantly!

We’re excited to simplify giving and fundraising for everyone through our website, app, and community.

Our Beginning

We stop at nothing

What happens when you bring together 54 people that love Jesus and send them to every corner of the Globe for a year? Big dreams and a whole lot of malaria!

We Love To Serve

In 2017, this team of believers took a leap of faith, in obedience to the calling they had received, and gave away all they had to serve others in the name of Jesus in the poorest parts of the world.

We Lead With Faith

3 months into their journey, West Africa hit the team hard with malaria (a parasitic infection carried by mosquitos).

Josh Pareja, the founder of Gaingive, was affected the worst, contracting the parasite a total of 4 times.

We Keep It Simple

Love God and love people.

God doesn’t call us to be fancy, He calls us to be obedient!

God speaks in funny ways! It only took until I was on my death bed for the 4th time for Him to put the Idea of Gaingive on my heart. We had been traveling around to some pretty poverty stricken areas, seeing churches and ministries struggle to keep the doors open because of the lack of financial support. And yeah, I just felt it in my heart that, since it all belongs to God anyways, we might as well get creative about how people support ministries. In the coming months was really when it was revealed to us just how powerful this could be, not only for financial support to those who could really use it, but more importantly to introduce a giving lifestyle to a lot of people. “

“We were pretty extreme back then; we gave away everything we had, and it was awesome and brought us so much joy! We get that not everyone is called to live a life like that, but man what if we could get them hooked on giving in a way that doesn’t cost them a thing?!”
