Since 2012 we have been working with families during their time in the NICU to teach coping skills, build community and eat some good old fashioned home cooking... but that's not all. 

Our Mission

To support families in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit {NICU} to thrive during their stay and at home. Love for Lily does this through facilitated support groups; teaching coping skills and providing community. Essentials Bags; items that can provide a little comfort and ease the burden of life in the NICU. Grants for insured families who spend 4 weeks or more in the NICU to help obtain therapies that support the well being of their child(ren). Lasting Love, Post-NICU Group for moms to come together for one year after discharge.

“Being able to come to group, eat some real food (hospital cafeteria food gets very old day in and day out!) and talk to other moms, to be reassured that my little girl would pull through, and would turn into a strong, healthy child, gave me the strength to be there for her, advocate for her, and make it through her NICU stay without breaking down.”

— Emily's Mama
