Family Support

Often preterm infants spend weeks to months in the hospital.  This will place most families under financial stress. The purpose of the Family Support Program is ease the financial burden associated with having a critically ill infant.  Some support, like a gas card, is provided during the NICU stay.  However, most support is given in the form of baby care items at the time of discharge.
