Mommies In Need: Providing Childcare to Sick Mommies
Mommies In Need provides in-home childcare to stay-at-home parents going through a health crisis. We not only fund nannies for sick moms, but also provide them with someone who is vetted, background checked, CPR certified, and experienced in dealing with situations when a parent is suddenly ill. All completely free of charge to the families.
As much as possible we send the same nanny to the same family for the entire duration of their contract with us (up to six months) and can help on a full-time or part-time basis. We also build community around these moms by encouraging the nannies to schedule play dates with each other, and by hosting all-family get-togethers with our past and present families and our nannies. These events are a chance for the kids to see the nanny that cared for them, and for our moms further down the recovery path to mentor those mommies who are currently in the worst of it.
In our first two and a half years of operation, we have gone from having one nanny helping one family to having 4 nannies on full time contracts with families at one time and being able to proudly say that we have helped 26 families in Dallas with almost 9,000 hours of childcare! Thank you to all of our supporters for helping us give live-changing aid to these amazing moms!
