Our Mission

Since 2003, Hope for Henry has improved the lives of more than 10,000 children at hospitals in our hometown of Washington, DC and  around the country.

Hope for Henry (HFH) funds the salaries of full-time child life specialists who provide carefully-chosen gifts and specially-designed programs to entertain and promote comfort, care and recovery to children fighting cancer and other serious illnesses at Children's National Medical Center and MedStar Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, DC.

HFH brings smiles and laughter, hope and magic into the lives of these children and their families.  HFH honors the legacy of Henry Strongin Goldberg, a Washington, DC resident who died at age seven of a rare, fatal disease.
