Roots implements its mission by providing high-quality, comprehensive and culturally appropriate health care, by implementing direct service models to increase access to care and thereby prevent the need for emergency services, and by coordinating cross-agency liaisons to ensure a more efficient, continuum of care in East Oakland.

Kidney Foundation of Ohio

The Kidney Foundation of Ohio is dedicated to providing a broad-based program of direct assistance to those with kidney disease and promoting and providing educational programming for the general public, renal professionals, and patients and their families. It is our goal that all people with renal disease or transplant recipients will be accepted in the community and have a measurably improved quality of life and function as a result of the services provided by the Kidney Foundation of Ohio.

The Foundation serves a thirty-two county area in northern and eastern Ohio and supports two affiliate chapters in Lake and Summit Counties. There are five counties supported by the organization in West Virginia to assist individuals who cross into Ohio for treatment.

What began as a small group of families and physicians has become the premier agency in Ohio for providing direct assistance and education to those suffering from the effects of kidney failure. The Kidney Foundation remains the only health and human services agency in Northeast Ohio which continues to provide direct dollars to patients to assist through the devastation of kidney disease. The Foundation remains an Ohio-based organization and all funds raised in Ohio, stay in Ohio to help our patients.

Hear Your Song

Hear Your Song, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that empowers children and teens with serious illnesses and complex health needs to make their voices heard through collaborative songwriting.

In live, collaborative songwriting sessions, Hear Your Song volunteers work with children and teens to guide them through the process of writing their own song lyrics. Using the kid songwriter’s ideas for musical style, melody, instrumentation, and tempo, volunteer composers and musicians then set those words to music and record the song to be heard, celebrated, and shared.

Hear Your Song partners with pediatric hospitals and long-term care centers as well as camps, schools, and other nonprofit programs that serve kids experiencing serious illnesses and complex health needs. Hear Your Song’s volunteers collaborate with kids through campus-based chapters and at the organization’s national level. All of our programs are available to our families and partner organizations free of charge.
