Together We Grow played an integral role in the amendment of California State Senate Bill 126, which recognizes medically fragile children and their need for pediatric daycare. Children with medically fragile conditions suffer from the absence of appropriate day health care services rendered by qualified providers to enhance their physical and developmental potential. As a result of this bill, eligible children now receive every opportunity to grow and develop; to gain self-help, social and independent-living skills; and to receive necessary medical interventions in the enriching, stimulating environment of a qualified pediatric day health and respite care facility.

Pediatric day health care is an effective way to provide a community-based non-institutional resource for families. It promotes child health, development and well-being; eliminates the isolation of the child inherent in home health care; preserves family unity; and provides an opportunity for parents to continue or return to employment.
