Established in 1947 through the generosity of Mary Stewart and Helen Stewart Devore in honor of their parents, the Stewart Trust awards pediatric and cancer care grants to Washington, DC non-profits and funds cancer research scholars nationally. Learn more about what we support below.
Children’s National Medical Center
In 2018, The Trust invested $1 million to create the Children’s National Community Mental Health Core (CMHC). Nationally and in Washington, DC, 1 in 5 children has a diagnosable mental disorder and 1 in 10 has a serious mental health problem that is severe enough to impair how they function at home, school, or in the community. Mental health is optimally addressed across the physical health care, social support, and education delivery systems using a whole-child, family-centered approach.
