Our Mission

Cape Ivy, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit provides warmth, comfort and support to children who have chronic or critical illnesses and their families. Cape Ivy provides fleece ponchos to children in the hospital because robes, sweaters and jackets don’t work well with IV lines and other medical equipment. Cape Ivy is a resource for families experiencing long-term hospitalization of children.

Cape Ivy is managed, promoted and sustained by volunteers and the support of the Board of Directors.
