ASW Cares for Kids

A foundation building and developing child services and facilities, improving the quality of life for hospitalized children.

Welcome to ASW Cares for Kids

Adam Scott Weiss (ASW) Cares for Kids is dedicated to enhancing the lives of children affected by illness. By transforming pediatric treatment facilities into safe, warm and comforting environments and through our support for child-life services, we ease the apprehension and disruption experienced by hospitalized children and their families.

ASW Cares for Kids is a family foundation with over three decades devoted to helping children in need. Through its efforts it raises money to build and develop child services and facilities, improving the quality of life for hospitalized children.

The concept of the fund emerged with the death of the family’s child, Adam Scott Weiss, from an incurable Lymphoma, or cancer of the lymph gland. The Weiss family spent many hours on the pediatric floor of the Langone Medical Center. They quickly found that the facility was without activities and services to entertain and distract children who were hospitalized for long periods of time while undergoing treatment.

With Adam’s death, the family wanted to make a lasting contribution that would preserve his memory and benefit those children, as well as their families, who were simultaneously experiencing the devastation of long hospitalizations.
