Let's Help Others Level Up

Join our quest to provide kids in hospitals with recreation and therapy through the power of video games!

What is Gamers Outreach?

Founded in 2007, we're a 501(c)(3) charity organization that provides equipment, technology, and software to help kids cope with treatment inside hospitals.

Who We Are

We started as a group of high schoolers with a passion for playing video games. After volunteering at our local hospital, we realized there were specific ways games could help children cope with long-term visits. We've since evolved into a community of gaming enthusiasts eager to make a difference for kids in hospitals everywhere!

What We Do

Our focus is to support kids and teens throughout the healing process as they undergo treatment in hospitals. We equip nurses and child life specialists with the means to make activities and technology accessible. Ultimately, our goal is to create sustainable experiences that produce joy and minimize trauma for patients.

Why It's Important

Undergoing medical treatment can often be a scary and isolating experience, especially for young people. There is a special need for age-appropriate coping tools in pediatric hospitals. Our programs help aid the healing process by providing relief, socialization, and a sense of normalcy to families and patients spending time inside hospitals.
