Community Benefit Tree’s (CBT) mission is empower individuals and families to effectively navigate a medical crisis, encompassing finances, health resources, and spiritual well-being. We started as a labor of love after hosting a golf outing in memory of Lawrence Wolfinger who passed away from a heart attack. We create a volunteer team to support the family, train the support team to put on a successful fundraiser, provide counseling and help establish a medical crisis budget, help pay immediate bills, and provide resources and support.
For the past 16 years, we’ve been serving Wisconsin brothers and sisters as the Fox Valley Sibling Support Network. We’ve sponsored regular Sibshops® and camps for boys and girls (based in northeastern Wisconsin, but open to all) and we’ve delivered future-planning training and social events for adults and families. We believe the family is the most important support system and can best help children, in particular children growing up with siblings who have developmental disabilities or long-term illnesses, if provided with information, services, and encouragement.
