Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

In-Home Care

We provide nannies to stay-at-home parents disabled by illness or injury. The amount of time each family receives nanny care is dependent on their individual situation. We provide either full time or part time help for a period of one week- six months. All nanny care is completely free of cost to the families we help.

Population(s) Served
Parents
Families

Opened in November 2020, Annie's Place at Parkland is a drop-in childcare center for parents and guardians on the campus of Parkland Hospital. At Annie's Place, expertly trained teachers care for children of patients, enabling their caregivers to attend appointments and receive the treatment they need. All care at Annie's Place is free of cost to our client families thanks to our generous sponsors and donors.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people
Parents
People with diseases and illnesses
Pregnant people

Play therapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses play to help children deal with emotional and mental health issues. By 'playing out' life experiences and exploring feelings through play, children can create a safe distance from their issues so they can come to terms with them without feeling judged or being forced to change. At Annie's Place, we have a full-time on-site play therapist who works directly with children and their families to address emotional and behavioral situations that may arise from a parent's medical diagnosis. Children's experiences at Annie's Place are amplified through the take-home materials they receive to use at home. In addition to working with children at Annie's Place, our play therapist works directly with parents to complete Parental Stress assessments to help them with parenting through their illness.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We see that there is a significant need for quality childcare for families to access healthcare. We remain committed and focused on caring for the children of parents, grandparents, and guardians so that they can receive necessary medical care. At the same time, we have recognized that there is also an unmet need in caring for the siblings of children receiving medical care, particularly with NICU babies, and have welcomed these families into our programs. We have also adapted to provide childcare for hospital staff, particularly lower-income support staff, who would otherwise not be able to work. By providing childcare to all of these groups, Mommies In Need is a wholistic solution to the issue of childcare as a barrier to healthcare access.
