This year we have been able to help 100 families in the community during COVID with healthy food to eat. We can't do this without you. We help everyone dealing with an auto immune disease, and especially children with Juvenile Arthritis. JIA is a chronic condition, meaning it can last for months and years. Sometimes the symptoms just go away with treatment, which is known as remission. Remission may last for months, years, or a person's lifetime. In fact, many teens with JIA eventually enter full remission with little or no permanent joint damage. Juvenile Arthritis (JA) Juvenile arthritis affects nearly 300,000 kids and teens in the United States. Juvenile arthritis (JA), also known as pediatric rheumatic disease, isn't a specific disease. It's an umbrella term to describe the inflammatory and rheumatic diseases that develop in children under the age of 16.

In response, our Board of Directors has pledged to match gifts to support families who are struggling to make ends meet.

Many Americans are experiencing severe financial hardship as we enter the third month of the pandemic. Our families are facing additional hardships due to lost employment, illnesses and business closures.

Your gift today, when matched by our Board of Directors, will help ensure that we can continue to help our families who are struggling to get by in these challenging economic times.

Requests for food assistance have more than tripled in just one month — help us help those who have done, and continue to do, so much for all of us.

Challenge accepted!

So what does Autoimmune illness means? It is your body's immune system protects you from disease and infection. But if you have an autoimmune disease, your immune system attacks healthy cells in your body by mistake. Autoimmune diseases can affect many parts of the body.

No one is sure what causes autoimmune diseases. They do tend to run in families. Women - particularly African-American, Hispanic-American, and Native-American women - have a higher risk for some autoimmune diseases.

There are more than 80 types of autoimmune diseases, and some have similar symptoms. This makes it hard for your health care provider to know if you really have one of these diseases, and if so, which one. Getting a diagnosis can be frustrating and stressful. Often, the first symptoms are fatigue, muscle aches and a low fever. The classic sign of an autoimmune disease is inflammation, which can cause redness, heat, pain and swelling.

The diseases may also have flare-ups, when they get worse, and remissions, when symptoms get better or disappear. Treatment depends on the disease, but in most cases one important goal is to reduce inflammation. Sometimes doctors prescribe corticosteroids or other drugs that reduce your immune response.

Most people think of Juvenile Arthritis as affecting only the joints, but it can affect almost any part of the body. The increased inflammation seen in Juvenile Arthritis plays a part in accelerated heart disease, especially in tribal populations, which can lead to earlier mortality. It’s important for doctors servicing American Indian populations to be well versed in early diagnosis and a variety of treatment options.

General information

VISION: Through generous, widespread public support and a collaborative team of exceptional staff and volunteers, we aspire to become the provider of choice for emergency financial and other assistance to the families of our children affected with Juvenile Arthritis. Where there is a need we do not provide, we will partner with others for the benefit of our children. This organization will focus on education and awareness of Auto-Immune Illness such as Juvenile Arthritis and Type 1 Diabetes. in the communities that have little to no health insurance. We believe that no matter what type of auto-immune illness affects your life or your families' life the best thing you can do is become aware of it and the treatments available for it.
