PENNIES FROM HEAVEN was started in loving memory of Caleb Joseph, a beautiful little boy who brought love and happiness to everyone he met. Caleb was happy and healthy until a malignant brain tumor ended his life suddenly in February 2007… he was only 2 years old when he gained his angel wings. Caleb’s Foundation was started out of love for him as well as the desire to be a support system for families in need.
We are dedicated to providing financial assistance to families with a critically ill child fighting for their life. Help comes by way of covering rent or mortgage payments, electric or medical bills, groceries, transportation and much more. PENNIES FROM HEAVEN helps families relieve the stress of financial burdens at home, so parents can concentrate on the more important issue at hand, their child’s recovery. No parent should ever have to prioritize a payment or job before the care of their sick child.
Inspired by Hope
Many families struggle with balancing work and home life, while taking care of a sick child at the same time. Joshua’s family is one of them. He was diagnosed with HLH , a rare life-threatening immunodeficiency. Since 2011, Josh has received two bone marrow transplants and is currently inpatient at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital…

Some Kind Words….
“Words fall short when it comes to my family expressing our thanks and gratitude for this wonderful foundation… We thank God that PFH was there for us when we needed them, they went above and beyond for my family. Sweet Caleb, you will always be in our hearts and your family always in our prayers! We were discharged from CHOP on May 7th, 2014, still fighting… but now from home.”–-Claudia (Gabriel’s mom)
“Caleb’s Foundation sent us a donation to help with travel, food and work on our home while our daughter is in the hospital. I just wanted to let you know how thankful we are to all of you at PENNIES FROM HEAVEN. You will never know how much it has helped our family during this difficult time in our lives. Thank you so very much again… we are so grateful!”–-Ayla’s family
“Since June of 2010, our children have spent a combined 30 months in the hospital or at the Ronald McDonald house in Cincinnati,
requiring our family to be separated by 400 miles for many months at a time. My other children and I have made the trip back and forth from the hospital nearly 70 times! As you can imagine, this is no small task on a teacher’s salary. We have been very blessed by your generous contribution and look forward to calmer times when we can help others and pay it forward.” –-Andrew (Eliza’s father)
