In 1902, Mary Irwin Laughlin established the Memorial Home for Cripple(d) Children to care for Emile, a six-year-old boy who lost his legs in a train accident. Since our founding, The Children’s Institute of Pittsburgh has seen many changes, but has always remained committed to Mary Irwin Laughlin’s mission of supporting kids with special needs and their families.
When you make a legacy gift, you are welcome to join the Mary Irwin Laughlin Society in recognition of you furthering our mission. Together we can heal, teach, and empower amazing kids for generations to come.
For more than a century, The Children’s Institute of Pittsburgh has been committed to helping kids with special needs and their families. You can be a part of this legacy by investing in our future with a planned gift, and together we can continue changing the lives of amazing kids.
