Holding Tiny Hands Foundation provides support services for parents of micro-preemies and infants with chronic health issues who endure lengthy stays in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). A micro-preemie is a baby who is born prior to 26 weeks gestation (14 weeks early) &/or with a birth weight of less than 1.75 pounds. Holding Tiny Hands is organized around the mission of providing a continuum of support to parents from the time in the NICU, throughout discharge, and beyond. The goal is to improve the outcomes of micro-preemies and infants with chronic health issues by providing information about and access to community resources that assist parents with the development and care of their premature baby. All support services are funded through foundation and government grants and personal donations.
