Our Mission

Since 2003, Hope for Henry has improved the lives of more than 15,000 children.

Hope for Henry is reinventing how hospitals care for seriously ill children and their families through innovative programs that entertain, reduce stress and empower children to be active participants in their own care. Founded in 2003 and led by social innovator, patient advocate and author Laurie Strongin, Hope for Henry honors the legacy of Henry Strongin Goldberg, a Washington, DC resident who died at age seven of a rare, fatal disease.
