Vote: My Little Waiting Room

My Little Waiting Room is the creation of two Portland women-- Amy Paterson, a cancer survivor and her friend, Melissa Moore .  Their project is one of the top 25 in the running to share $2.5 million in funds, but they need your help to get into the Top 5 to get that money. 

My Little Waiting Room will improve access to health care and help families thrive. Public health studies show many families have trouble finding child care and that stops them from getting the medical care they need. If they take their children with them to appointments they are often distracted and not able to focus on what the doctor is saying. With drop-in child care in hospitals and medical centers children can have a good time, while their loved one gets the care they need.
