Since 2012 we have been working with families during their time in the NICU to teach coping skills, build community and eat some good old fashioned home cooking... but that's not all. 


Our Mission

To support families in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit {NICU} through facilitated support groups, provide grants for insured families who spend 4 weeks or more in the NICU to help obtain therapies that support the well being of their child(ren) or to ease the burden of medical debt. Love for Lily provides services and essentials to help families to thrive during and after life in the NICU. 

“Being able to come to group, eat some real food (hospital cafeteria food gets very old day in and day out!) and talk to other moms, to be reassured that my little girl would pull through, and would turn into a strong, healthy child, gave me the strength to be there for her, advocate for her, and make it through her NICU stay without breaking down.”
— Emily’s Mommy
