There's still time to register your child for Camp Hamwi! Camp Hamwi is a unique and exceptional summer camp experience for youths with diabetes.

Campers enjoy a daily schedule that integrates traditional camp activities, like horseback riding, canoeing, and archery, with diabetes education sessions to increase understanding of how to manage their condition. This makes Camp Hamwi a unique environment for youths with diabetes. They find themselves in community with others who are walking the same path of diabetes management. Here they can learn in a supportive environment together with staff and peers who understand their daily victories and struggles.

Our Youth and Family Program Director Anthony Myer was recently featured on the 2TypeOnes podcast. Listen and learn more about Camp Hamwi and its critical importance to the diabetic community.

Help us Beat the Heat!
LifeCare Alliance's annual Beat the Heat Fan Campaign benefits central Ohio’s most vulnerable residents during the summer months. Seniors and medically challenged individuals are especially susceptible to complications as a result of extreme temperatures. But a simple box fan can lower the temperature of a room and save lives!

LifeCare Alliance needs your support again to help central Ohio residents Beat the Heat in 2022. Here's how you can help:

  • Donate a fan! Check out our Amazon Wish List, or drop a fan off to your local fire station or to our 670 Harmon Ave. location. You can also join us and WBNS 10TV for our Fan Campaign Kickoff where you can purchase and immediately donate fans. Lowe's is generously donating the first 100 fans.
Wednesday, June 15
10:00 a.m.-6:30 p.m.
Lowe's Home Improvement
2345 Silver Drive, Columbus, OH 43211

  • Volunteer! Volunteers call fire stations 2-3 times a week, pick up donated fans, and deliver them to our Harmon Avenue facility.

Critical Need Alert!
We need focused help to cover Meals-on-Wheels weekend and holiday routes in the summer. You'll start between 10:00 and 11:00 a.m. and be done around 1:00 p.m.

Please consider spending part of your weekend with us. You can deliver Meals-on-Wheels with your friends or family for some true quality time together - while Nourishing the Human Spirit!
