The Jocelyn Tangitau Foundation, Inc.

We are grateful for your continued support and generosity.

​We wish to thank Ginger Marvin, Peter Piper Pizza, all who attended and donated online for supporting JTF Inc. mission to assist families in the Phoenix valley with medically fragile children. We raised enough to provide twenty-one hours of palliative/respite care. 

We wish to thank Evil Twin Custom Cycles, F-Troop, Team Blaze, and Creative Hands Cuisine for the "Ride For Life" fundraising event.  All helped raise seventy five hours or palliative/respite care.

"Making Lives of Families with Special Needs Children Better"

The mission of The Jocelyn Tangitau Foundation is to seek and partner with organizations focused on providing palliative and respite care services and support -- an interval of relief for families with children suffering from life-threatening, irreversible, and terminal health conditions.


Our philosophy of care addresses not only physical pain but also the emotional, spiritual and social needs of the child and family.  This enlightened approach to care is of critical importance, beginning at diagnosis and continuing throughout the entire course of a child’s life.

"Assist Families in Finding Respite Care"

Arizona families are without an advocate program to help assist and direct them to quality respite care.  

With your help, we can provide supportive and adaptive care for the ever-changing medical needs of children and their families.
