The mission of The Preemie Project is to provide comfort and support to Iowa NICU families. Preterm infants can spend a few days or weeks to months in the hospital.  This can place most families under financial stress. The Preemie Project strives to help ease the financial burden associated with having a critically ill infant in the NICU.  Some support, like gas cards, is provided during the NICU stay.  But, most support is given in the form of baby care items at the time of discharge.
