Women and Children

Your support sings babies to sleep.

Thanks to you, babies sleep well here and at home.

Thanks to the incredible generosity of so many donors, we are able to purchase seven bassinets to support safer sleep for our babies. In addition,  a donor made an additional gift to purchase twelve pack and plays, a portable and safe sleep system that folds up for easy carrying . Our social worker will distribute these pack and plays to families in need so they can provide safe sleep at home. This support provided the new swivel bassinets for the Women and Families Unit at Ascension St. Elizabeth Hospital. These bassinets create a safe sleep environment while our new families are in the hospital, and increase the bonding of new mother and baby.

A recent story shared with us:

A young mother was in an abusive relationship and had nowhere to go after she delivered her baby. She will likely have to go to the local domestic violence shelter. She has no resources or local support as her family lives out of state. Our social worker issued her a pack and play and the look on her face was priceless, as she replied, "Now I have a safe place for my baby to sleep."
