Virtual Community

Sponsored by:


Mommies In Need is now accepting applications for our "Virtual Community," a program focused on serving pre-school-aged children (ages 3-6) that will help alleviate the burden of childcare on families where a caregiver is experiencing a health crisis. We will offer this to families who are suffering from any type of health crisis, including those affected by COVID-19. We will also be offering our services to hospital staff and first responders (or those caring for the children of these frontline workers) during this public health crisis.

For all families accepted into the program, we will provide one-on-one time with a “Virtual Nanny” through a video conference system. This nanny will get to know each child and engage them in scheduled calls several times a week, with the goal of giving the caregiver a chance to rest.

For families who qualify based on the need we may also provide:

  • A loan of either a Chromebook or tablet for the duration of their service term.

  • A one-time shipment of educational toys, arts and crafts supplies, and books.

Apply For Care

If you are a parent experiencing a health crisis, including COVID-19, and have at least one child under the age of 6, you may apply for services by clicking the link below. Hospital staff or first responders may also apply. All services are free of cost to approved families.

Please note: We will respond to requests for help as quickly as possible. If you have specific questions about the program you can email for more information.

“I think the program is amazing! It saved my sanity last week and brought joy to my son! The hour appointment with the virtual nanny gave my son something to look forward to! He loved his nanny and looked forward to playing with her! It allowed me a little breathing room to get other things done like work or housework. I cannot put into words how much this meant to our family.”
