Programs

New Day’s approach to reducing the financial burden of cancer includes three core programs:

Financial Assistance

New Day pays critical living expenses for families with a pediatric or adult cancer patient in active treatment. Payments are made directly to creditors for mortgage/rent, utilities, insurance, transportation, fuel, childcare, and more. The chart below shows the breakdown of grant funds paid in 2020.

Emotional Support

New Day partners with licensed therapists who agree to offer pro bono mental health services in a caring, confidential environment. We send each family a custom Care Pack containing comfort items such as blankets, prayer shawls, journals, stress toys, candy for chemo mouth, age-appropriate books and more.

Grocery Support

New Day began a grocery shopping and delivery program in April 2020 to minimize stress and lower risk for cancer patients by delivering fresh, healthy food to their doorsteps. With the help of 170 volunteers across the state of Michigan, this program addresses vital safety and food insecurity issues for the cancer community.


Additional New Day Programs:

Care Pack Program

New Day provides customized Care Packs, assembled with love and sent directly to cancer patients and their families. Each Care Pack contains a variety of items, some hand made by our incredible volunteer community, to bring comfort and smiles to those we serve. Each one is filled with the love, prayers, and kindness of all who support our mission.

Hope for the Holidays

No child should go without at the holidays. New Day’s Hope for the Holidays program strives to soften the financial impact faced by cancer families during the holiday season. When we provide gifts for a family, it’s not just about giving gifts — it’s an effort to restore normalcy, joy and hope to their lives.
