How We Help

Programs & Services

Every family’s needs are unique. Our job is to alleviate their greatest financial and emotional burdens to reduce the effects of financial toxicity and improve treatment outcomes and survivorship. Qualified applicants have either a parent or child currently undergoing cancer treatment in the state of Michigan, and must have dependent children under the age of 18 living in the home.

Positive Impact Program

New Day offers bill payment services (excluding medical bills, credit cards and vacations) to families who have suffered significant income loss as a result of a cancer diagnosis.

Single Parent Program

The Single Parent Program specifically addresses the unique burdens of single parent families facing cancer. Single parents often forego treatment, risking their lives, due to lack of support and funding for childcare and/or transportation. This should never be an option.

Counseling Program

New Day has a social worker and professional counselor on staff who offers a limited number of complimentary counseling sessions to our families on an ongoing basis. Learn more.

Care Pack Program

Each family receives a customized care package filled with comfort items and helpful resources including Financial Handbooks, blankets, inspirational and educational books, and other partner resources.

Food and Fuel

New Day provides grocery and fuel gift cards to support families who have lost income due to a cancer diagnosis. You can help in two ways:

  1. Purchase gift cards for families while simultaneously donating to New Day! Sounds crazy, right?! Get this! New Day is a member of Great Lakes Scrip, a program that allows us to order gift cards at full face value (Meijer, Speedway, Target, WalMart, Panera etc.) and receive a percentage donated back to New Day!
  2. Or, purchase gift cards for personal use while simultaneously donating to New Day! Works both ways!

To order gift cards simply contact us and we’ll help you process your order.

Hope for the Holidays

Every year we bring together families and sponsors to celebrate the season at our annual Lights, Love and Laughter party. For more information please click here.
