Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers drive our work to empower families. With help from people like you, we’re making an impact through education, research and advocacy, but there is still work to do. Join us to mobilize your network and raise the critical awareness and funds to improve the health of moms and babies.

We believe that every baby deserves the best possible start. Unfortunately, not all babies get one.

Will you take the lead?

Virtual and at home volunteer opportunities

Gratitude Gifts for Healthcare providers

send postcards to policy makers

Gather friends and family virtually to participate in a postcard party. Send postcards to elected officials and your neighbors to encourage them to be aware of the maternal and infant health crisis in America. Download the how to guide and template today!

send a note of hope

Every year 4 million babies are born. This is an exciting and challenging time, but can also be scary when everything doesn’t go as planned, and even more so during this uncertain time in our country. Please show your support sending a note of hope. This could include:

  • A note to a mom or dad to be or to a family with a baby currently in the NICU. Sharing your advice, experience and words of encouragement.
  • A note to healthcare providers, nurses, and staff who are on the frontlines making sure that moms and babies are receiving the best possible care.

Or, download the template and write your own.

Do it at home Cloth Face Coverings

This how-to guide includes tutorials for making cloth mask coverings as a protective measure for COVID-19. Wearing a mask is an additive protective measure and should not impact the need to continue social distancing and for individuals to follow hand washing guidance.
