Smoothing the Transition Home from the NICU
We know that parents experience significant stress from their baby’s NICU stay and that by providing them with support, education, resources, and follow-up after they are discharged from the NICU can buffer some of the social-emotional stress they have experienced so that they have the knowledge, skills, and emotional health needed to support their baby’s development and long term well-being.
What Families Say About the Support They Receive

Our volunteers are the backbone of our organization and allow us to provide all the programs we support. We have different programs and opportunities that can use a variety of skills and knowledge. We have no annual commitment, the number of hours, or days a week. There are many different activities and a lot of opportunities to use your expertise with our programs. Examples include:
This next year we will be working on developing our Parent-Peer Mentor and Volunteer-Mentor Programs. Please let us know if you would be interested in providing volunteer support for this program.
