Organization Summary

Project Sunshine is a New York City headquartered organization that addresses the psychosocial and developmental needs of pediatric patients and their families. We serve patients ages 0-21 facing any medical challenge and take a family-centered approach to care, inviting caregivers and siblings to participate in all program activities. Project Sunshine was founded in a college dorm room by a student who motivated others to volunteer and fill a gap in care within the pediatric environment; for the past twenty years, this entrepreneurial spirit and commitment to bringing joy and connection into the hospital setting remain at the core of the organization.

Trained volunteers deliver in-hospital activities that normalize the hospital experience for young patients, provide support and resources to hospital staff, and offer volunteers a chance to give back to their communities. Our unique volunteer engagement model allows community groups, colleges, and corporations to create moments of connection with pediatric patients, caregivers, and families. It also steps beyond the formal healthcare system to provide adaptable, play-based programming that inspires child-centric and family-based behavioral change. By addressing individual behavior, the leading social determinant of health, Project Sunshine helps patients realize their own sense of agency.

Over 18,000 trained volunteers deliver programs that provide opportunities for creative expression, socialization, intellectual stimulation, and sensory integration to more than 150,000 pediatric patients and families. To carry out this impactful work, Project Sunshine partners with 325+ medical facilities across the U.S. and in four international locations: Canada, China, Israel, and Kenya.
