Jake’s Help From Heaven was founded in 2011 by Brian and Heather Straughter following the passing of their 4 year-old son Jake. This non-profit is dedicated to supporting individuals with multiple medical challenges and disabilities living within 100 miles of Saratoga Springs. Countless challenges occur in caring for medically fragile, special needs individuals. Jake’s Help From Heaven believes strongly in the best possible quality of life for all and through our grant process we work to assist individuals affected y debilitating illnesses. Our Board of Directors meet quarterly to review applications and purchase items of medical necessity as well as medical convenience for applicants, as well as reimbursements for medical travel.
Since our inception we have awarded over $350,000. We are so proud of the work we had been able to do and the support we have provided all in Jake’s name.
