BEGIN APPLICATION BELOW
To start an application for a Family, please enter the password below and click “Access” followed by “Apply.” If you are a social worker or healthcare professional and this is your first time referring a family to BHH, please call our office to request the password. Once the password has been entered, this will open our pre-application form, which should be filled out by the social worker to begin a Family’s application. The pre-application confirms that the Family applying meets our guidelines. A pre-application can be completed and submitted to BHH at any time of the month to begin the family’s application in our system. Please print a HIPAA form for the Family to sign and complete. This form will need to be signed and uploaded on the family’s pre-application form.
Once the pre-application has been submitted, it is reviewed by BHH’s Family Department. The social worker will then receive an email from a BHH staff member, confirming that the Family meets our guidelines for assistance, so that the full application for the Family can be completed. The application can be saved at any time if more information is needed or if the application is completed outside of one of our acceptance days listed above.
We will only accept completed applications online on the acceptance dates listed above, between 8am and 4pm. Social workers will receive email confirmation once the Family’s application was accepted and approved. Families will receive a phone call from a BHH volunteer, welcoming them to our program and answering any questions.
If you need assistance during the application process or have questions on how to apply for financial assistance, please call the BHH office at 484-580-8395. Thank you.
Bringing Hope Home is proud to offer the 2018 Adopt-A-Family (AAF) Program. The goal of this program is to provide holiday gifts for families with cancer in the Greater Philadelphia Area who are struggling due to a cancer diagnosis. No money will be given directly to the family. Rather, families will receive gifts, as specified on the family’s application, which is submitted to BHH by the family’s social worker. All gifts will be purchased by local organizations, companies, and individuals who have volunteered to donate to this program. This will require Bringing Hope Home to share each family’s gift list and first name with the donor that they have been paired with.
Gift lists should be submitted online by the family’s social worker. The deadline to submit a gift list is Wednesday, November 7, 2018. All gifts will be delivered to the family by the donor who purchased the family’s gifts by Sunday, December 16th, wrapped or unwrapped based on the family’s preference.
If you are a social worker interested in submitting a gift list on behalf of a family, please call the BHH office to request information on our online gift application form.
