Special members of our family.

What is a Guardian Parent?

Guardian Parents are valued members of Cunningham’s family who help us look after the needs of our kids by making a commitment to provide financial support on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis. Their reliable support helps us to make up the difference between the actual cost of care for a child and the amount that we are reimbursed from referring resources - a cost of $28 per day, per client. 

Why become a Guardian Parent?

When you commit to give as a Guardian Parent, you are also making it possible for our youth to participate in field trips, summer camps, recreational activities, special therapies and many other enriching experiences. These opportunities often provide breakthrough moments for our kids as they learn new skills and move toward healing. Because of your support, Cunningham can go above and beyond to bring hope to our youth.

What does it take to be a Guardian Parent?

As a Guardian Parent you will have choices!  All we ask is for your continued support of the program.

You choose the amount – whatever meets your budget.
You choose how often you give – monthly, quarterly, or annually. We will graciously understand and respect your decision to change or cancel your commitment at any time.
You choose how to make your gifts - Payment Options


Our Guardian Parents are a gift to Cunningham and our youth.  We thank them for their continued love and support in helping us with our mission to see every child thrive!
