NICU Love & Lasting Love, for families with babies currently in-unit and after discharge from the Neonatal ICU. Click here to get connected to support and resources for your NICU journey.
Through facilitated support groups, Essentials Bags and grants, Love for Lily’s mission is to support families in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) to thrive during their stay and at home.
Facilitated support groups, such as Lasting Love, our post-NICU group, teach coping skills and provide community. Essentials Bags are stuffed with items that can provide a little comfort and ease the burden of life in the NICU. Grants help insured families who spend four or more weeks in the NICU obtain therapies that support the well-being of their child(ren).
Coming together, building community, learning coping skills and easing the feelings of isolation, our facilitated support groups are the pinnacle of our programing.
Essentials Bags are given to every family admitted to NICU units at our participating hospitals. Inside are items that can ease the journey; items include basics like a toothbrush and face wash, a journal and ways to get connected. Simple items that make a world of difference after a long night or many long nights.
Totaling $105,000 in grants given to qualifying families over 10 years, our grant program supports the well-being of infants served in the neonatal ICU. Love for Lily’s grant program provides a hand up when families need it most.
We want you! Join a committee, volunteer to bring breakfast, host an Essentials Bag-making event or donate to support the vital work we are doing. There are so many ways to get involved — if you have a skill or passion you want to share, please reach out and let’s partner together.
