Become a Volunteer
You can make a difference in the lives of NICU families.
Hand to Hold depends on the work of our many volunteers so that we can provide support to NICU families around the world.
Are you a former NICU parent who wants to help families in need of emotional support? In our award-winning Peer Mentor program, we match NICU graduate parents with families in need of emotional support before, during, and after a NICU stay or the loss of a baby. Mentors are given the tools and training they need to be confident to support families in their journey.
Are you interested in giving back to your community? Our Community Volunteer Program provides support to NICU families by allowing volunteers to give their time with hands-on and remote support to our organization. Hand to Hold frequently needs volunteers to staff local events and perform various administrative tasks at our headquarters.
Hand to Hold is occasionally in need of professional services ranging from photography to entertainment. If you have personal or professional services that you would like to share with us, please fill out the volunteer interest form so we can contact you.
Hand to Hold Youth Ambassador Program
Hand to Hold’s Youth Ambassador Program gives high school students with a connection to the NICU and our mission the opportunity to give back.
Many volunteers express the desire to provide assistance by volunteering in their local NICU through NICU rocker programs, material donations, or other NICU-specific opportunities. We at Hand to Hold do not facilitate these types of programs; however, we encourage you to contact your local NICU for more information.
