Learn more about the Resource Directory

Welcome to the St. Mary’s Healthcare System Resource Directory

This resource directory is for families/caregivers of children who have medically complex needs or long-lasting conditions that require extra health care and support services.

The information in this directory is provided to help you find resources to assist you with finding help for your child and family. The range of care/disability/health issues varies amongst children so the information may or may not pertain to your child.

What you'll find

After a family learns that their child is ill parents/caregivers typically begin to think about how they can best care for their child. The resources in this directory include agencies, service providers, advocacy organizations, and other resources to assist with providing a quality life for children with medically complex needs.

To find a resource enter your area of interest in the search box on the side bar and the location in the box located on the top of the screen. The directory is intended to assist you with being the best advocate for your child. Although we attempt to keep the directory current resources change constantly.

Got it!

  2. Sibsplace southnassau.org

    SIBSPlace was conceptualized to assist children who have brothers and sisters with cancer or another devastating illness.  These children typically struggle with feelings of loss of control and consistency, isolation, jealousy, embarrassment, guilt, abandonment, sadness, fear and anxiety.  At SIBSPlace, the children discover a safe environment where we balance attention to their emotional needs and much needed levity and diversions from stress.
