We support our NICU families by providing with essential items since they have been unable to prepare for their child's early arrival. Each "Package of Hope" is assembled with the family's specific needs as our top priority.
PROGRAMS & PROJECTS.
In our efforts to support babies, children and families that have been impacted by premature birth, we support our NICU families through our “Packages of Hope," "Preemie Pantry," "Holiday Hope Baskets," and "Lily's Hope Foundation Facebook Family Support Group," Programs. These programs are every growing and ever changing to stay current with the needs of families with premature babies.
Each "Package of Hope" is assembled with the family’s specific needs as our top priority. Referrals are made by hospital staff or by word of mouth.
In order to answer the urgent needs of the families in a timely fashion, Lily's Hope Foundation started a "Preemie Pantry." This pantry is stocked with a variety of items that our volunteers can use to assemble and customize every "Package of Hope."
In recognition of holidays throughout the year, Lily's Hope will provide smaller, non-customized care packages to our hospital partners called "Holiday Hope Baskets." These packages have a small quantity of supplies for NICU families to use.

FACEBOOK SUPPORT GROUP PAGE.
After many requests from our families and hospital staff, Lily's Hope Foundation launched its own Online Family Support Group through Facebook.
The Lily's Hope Foundation Family Support Group is meant to be an open forum for parents to communicate and gain support from each other's experiences, and for Lily's Hope to provide additional resources to the families it supports. The best feature of this support group is that it is online and doesn't require parents to leave their home with their precious newborn. They can access this on any device that the internet and Facebook are available. Content is constantly monitored by Lily's Hope personnel.
