Hand to Hold helps families before, during, and after NICU stays and infant loss by providing powerful resources for the whole family, and most importantly, one-on-one mentoring from someone who has been there.
Hand to Hold is a national nonprofit that was founded in 2010 by a NICU graduate parent who knew first-hand the isolation, trauma and lasting impact of a NICU stay. Our caring social work team uses their personal and professional experiences to ensure all Hand to Hold programs and services work for our NICU families, at every step in the journey. Our resources include in-hospital programs, podcasts, articles and blogs, social networks, and trained peer mentors. All were designed for the emotional, physical, and social needs of the whole NICU family – including siblings and grandparents.
