DCH Ambassador Family Program

When patients and families come to Driscoll Children’s Hospital for help, they are met with the same compassion, spirit, and generosity with which Clara Driscoll blessed our community when she founded the hospital 70 years ago. We believe that nothing is more precious than our children and we promise that every child that enters the doors of the hospital is cherished and loved. The DCH Ambassador Families Program was designed to share that promise with the community and bring awareness to the lifesaving work being done at Driscoll. As an Ambassador Family, you may be asked to attend and speak at various fundraising events throughout the year as a Driscoll Children’s Hospital representative. You will help us promote our mission of being devoted to expert care, education, outreach, and advocacy and, ultimately help us raise critical funds that support the patients and families of Driscoll.

Why should my family join?

By sharing the story of your journey, you are also sharing Driscoll’s story and spreading awareness of other families and patients like you. We want to hear about your experiences with our physicians, nurses, Child Life specialists, therapists; anyone who positively impacted your child and family. As a DCH Ambassador Family, you will inspire the community to support Driscoll Children’s Hospital and help us get kids back to being kids.

Each year in the fall, one child from the DCH Family Ambassador Program between the ages of 5 and 17 will be chosen to be the following year’s Children Miracle Network’s Miracle Champion. The Miracle Champion’s image and story will be used in marketing and promotional materials to support CMN partner campaigns and programs throughout the year.
