Founded in 2010 in Fort Worth, Texas by Lisa Grubbs. NICU Helping Hands is an organization that develops hospital-and community-based projects that provide education and support to families of premature infants.
November is National Prematurity Awareness Month and NICU Helping Hands Pounds 4 Preemies Campaign. In addition to raising awareness about prematurity, Pounds 4 Preemies is a general giving campaign that allows NICU Helping Hands to continue serving families throughout the United States. From our One-on-One Mentoring Program, Financial Assistance program, and Angel Gown bereavement program, to our Parent Educational Resource Center we continue to develop programs that serve every need a family facing a premature birth may have. We need you to help us "tip the scales" in their favor with your generous financial support.

PPA proudly unveiled the NICU Parent's Bill of Rights
at the 2013 National Association of Neonatal Nurse's conference in Nashville, TN. We received wonderful feedback from the nurses, parents, and advocates in attendance and encourage you to take a look at it, download it, print it, and share it with the hospitals you support!
Per a request at the Summit, we will be building a resource library of helpful and practical information, shared by our members on such topics as "Finding the right CRM program for your organization", "Volunteer Training", and many others. This is a way for us each to share things that have worked for one member that may be beneficial to other members. This is a member exclusive and will be found under the "Members Corner"
section of the website on the left.
We want EVERY parent of a preemie to feel supported and empowered!
For making this year's Preemie Parent Summit the best one yet! We enjoyed a wonderful weekend of networking, learning more about how we can work together and challenging ourselves in ways both personal and professional.
Be on the lookout for the detailed summary and photo album coming soon!
