Children's Mercy Program Mentor: Parents Offering Parent Support

The Parents Offering Parent Support (POPS) program is a network of parent volunteers who mentor other parents through the challenges of their child's health condition. POPS offers guidance and encouragement by connecting parents with compassionate mentors who have been through the same experiences with their own children.

Examples of Mentorship:
- Coping with the emotional challenges of a new diagnosis
- Building your child's health care needs into the daily routine
- Advice on transitioning back to school
- Maintaining energy while meeting complex demands
- Meeting long-term care needs such as chronic conditions or transplant recovery
- Sharing unique perspectives such as being a single parent or having limited access to resources
- Getting regular, positive encouragement to overcome challenges
