The mission of the Free Care Fund is to assure that children never be denied the care they need due to lack of funds.

“I’m thrilled to be part of the Howard Hanna team and grateful for the opportunity to continue the long tradition of giving by the Hanna family,” said Martin. “Directing the efforts to help children and their families through the Children’s Free Care Fund will be challenging while we navigate new ways of fundraising in a pandemic era, but I am ready to pick up the torch and carry on the legacy. My goal for the Children’s Free Care Fund is to promote our mission to assure that children are never denied the medical care they require and the support their families need. My hope is that Howard Hanna will be recognized as a leader in pediatric philanthropy in all markets we serve now and in the future.”
