StudentsCare is a Florida nonprofit that works with hospitalized children to match them with volunteer Hospital Buddies. Hospital Buddies spend time 1:1 with kids facing long hospital stays, such as pediatric cancer patients. StudentsCare Founder and CEO Erica Sokol found Grants on a Mission through the StartingBloc network, and they have been working with Grants on a Mission since 2016. Since then, StudentsCare has been awarded over $100,000 in grant funding. That's more college students volunteering in hospitals and more long-term pediatric patients with Hospital Buddies coming by to brighten their day.

In CEO Kristine Sloan's words, "Mehron was fabulous. She's incredibly clear with her clients - and made sure we were all on the same page before she started working with us. Mehron also wrote two grant applications for us - one as a general template and one for a specific program. I've used them both for grant applications and the writing is clear, solid, and bold. I really loved working with Mehron & Grants on a Mission and would absolutely recommend them! It'll be a great investment."
