The The Taylor Family Foundation seeks to improve the quality of life for children with chronic and life-threatening illnesses, developmental disabilities, and youth at risk in Northern California. Barry and Elaine Taylor founded TTFF to provide specialized support, resources, and therapeutic experiences to children and their families. To date, the foundation has served over 45,000 children and nearly 80,000 families. In its third decade of service, TTFF continues to provide support through its various life-enriching events, including 30 free camp sessions offered throughout the year.

ABC7's Cheryl Jennings takes us through The Taylor Family Foundation's 25 years and introduces us to some courageous and inspiring people who are changing the lives of those in need.
