When having a newborn daughter weighing less than 2 lbs in the NICU or a son awaiting a life-saving heart surgery, a home-cooked meal, a comfortable bed, a listening ear from a loving network of volunteers, and big hugs go a long way in giving strength when it’s needed most. For just $142 you can provide our services to a family for one night. Will you give families a sense of comfort and security during their greatest time of need?
