The Women’s Auxiliary to Children’s Medical Center was formed in 1962 by combining the auxiliaries from Bradford Memorial Hospital for Babies, Children’s Hospital of Texas and Richmond Freeman Memorial Clinic. In the very early days, Auxiliary volunteers assisted hospital staff in all aspects of running the hospital, from helping with admitting patients and running samples to the lab to assist physicians.
As the membership grew, so did its mission to make life better for children. The Auxiliary carries out this mission by raising funds for hospital priorities, offering uplifting activities for patient families, providing support and recognition to hospital staff, and raising awareness of the hospital in the community. Today, the Women's Auxiliary, which is currently celebrating 53 years of service and over 800 members annually, is a mission-driven organization of women dedicated to serving the patients and families treated at Children's Medical Center. Since its inception, the Auxiliary has contributed over $18 million to Children’s.
