The Hang Tough Foundation offers resources and encouragement to families during their journey with childhood illness and special needs.

Our vision is to build a community for families who are on a journey with childhood illness or special needs to provide a refuge and outlet that supports the entire family.  

Do you have a child age 0-21 with a chronic, life-altering illness or special need in Leon, Gadsden, Jefferson, or Wakulla county?
