BUNDLE OF JOY

The arrival of a new baby begins another chapter in the life of a family. The expected birth of a child is an exciting and joyful experience. However, for many new parents who are living at or below the Federal Poverty Level (FPL), this time can be quite unsettling and even daunting from a financial perspective. San Mateo County Health Foundation in partnership with San Mateo Medical Center launched the Bundle of Joy Program in 2010 to assist new parents as they begin their journey of starting a family.

The Caring Hands in Health program launched during the COVID-19 pandemic as a compassionate way to provide immediate assistance to patients in dire need.  If you are a provider that works at a San Mateo Medical Center clinic, either at the main campus or offsite, you can submit a HIPAA compliant application on behalf of a patient. Examples of items that can be given to patients who cannot receive help via insurance include accessibility gear, groceries, baby care supplies, etc.
