Our Santas

Santa Scheuch delivering Love, Hope and Joy

Santa John bringing Love, Hope and Joy!

The best Santas from across America come together to focus on our special mission: To provide an unhurried visit to families facing physical or emotional crisis from a loving, committed, trained, and back-grounded Santa.

Santa America is a national volunteer service organization with Santa's reaching out across America to visit children and families facing physical, emotional, and situational crisis. Santa Claus visits when a child or family needs him, any month of the year.

Our highly trained Santa's visit your child and family in your home, in the hospital or hospice, where ever needed bringing with him a warm Santa hug and spreading Love, Hope and Joy wherever he goes for everyone he meets.

Each visit is unique, bringing your child and family special attention, love and emotional support.

Santa recognizes every visit, wherever it may be, is an individual encounter with special circumstances. Very special care is taken to know and understand your special situation, when your special Santa is delivering the gifts of Love, Hope and Joy on each visit.



All Santa America Santas are all highly trained, qualified and undergo rigorous background validation.  From across America we come together to focus on providing an unhurried from a loving, committed, trained and prepared Santa.



Santa America is fully HIPAA compliant and respects patient and family privacy.  We are a member of, and follow precedents established by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) and Children’s Hospice International (CHI).



All of our Santa's are highly trained and background verified, including training for situations involving death, bereavement, post traumatic stress, autism.  All Santa's are required to receive Federal and State Patient Privacy Regulations.
