This chapter will guide the reader through the development and growth of a community-based nonprofit organization with a sustainable approach to the initial core values. This chapter serves as an informed roadmap for clinicians interested in pursuing the development of their own nonprofit. Working with children of adult patients will serve as the backdrop to highlight the concepts of the development and trajectory of the organization; the extrapolation of the process and skills to other populations will be addressed. The longitudinal experience of Wonders & Worries has afforded the organization the opportunity to learn many lessons and develop solid evidence-based practices in relation to clinical offerings coupled with overall organizational growth and strength. This chapter will provide the concepts, examples, and guidance to encourage sustainable child life programming in a variety of community settings supporting children and families.
