The mission of Wonders & Worries is to provide professional support for children through a parent’s illness. 

Wonders & Worries is an Austin-based nonprofit that ensures children and teens can reach their full potential even though their parent is facing a serious illness. Since 2001, Wonders & Worries has provided free, professional support that improves a family’s understanding, communication and coping skills during a parent’s serious illness. Wonders & Worries programs are free of charge, and offered in English and Spanish across 13 school districts and five offices in central and south Texas.

Wonders & Worries services are based on empirical data which shows that psychosocial support and illness education provided to children at age-appropriate levels significantly helps children maintain their well-being, eases stress within the family, improves parental depression, and increases the parent’s ability to focus on treatment – ensuring that the family can reach their potential and fully contribute to the community. Services include individual sessions, groups sessions and parenting classes.

Wonders & Worries model and services are unduplicated. Our vision is to offer Wonders & Worries programs across America.
