The Local Kids Program of Healing the Children focuses its attention on uninsured and underinsured children living in pockets of poverty throughout Central Florida. Children, who are without access to health care because of a lack of financial resources, receive donated medical care through our network of volunteer physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants. Healing the Children also provides ancillary services such as MRIs, lab work, and other necessary support services. Our goal is to provide each child with the comprehensive medical services they need to lead, healthy and productive life.

Medical Missions Program: Volunteer medical and surgical health professionals travel to different countries around the world. Volunteer medical and surgical health professionals travel overseas. They treat patients free of charge and share their expertise with host country health professionals during procedures and in-service sessions. Other volunteers unpack and prepare medical equipment and medicines, provide transportation, organize patients and document activities. Most trips last 8 to 10 days, and often the doctors treat as many as 100 children and screen scores more for possible treatment in the U.S. Specialties most often provided on HTC medical trips are plastic and maxillofacial surgery, dental services, ear, nose and throat services, cardiac and ophthalmologic, neurosurgical, urological, general surgical, and orthopedic procedures. The work is grueling but rewarding. Many doctors report feeling renewed commitment to their profession and new certainty that what they do is worthwhile.
