Maria’s Hope is a parent-based volunteer organization that provides emotional support and mentoring services to parents with babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital at Westchester Medical Center. We support parents of premature babies, babies born with special health care needs, and those who have experienced a loss due to these or other complications through one-on-one conversations. We support all parents, independent of their race, nationality or religion. We do not provide medical advice or offer medical services.
All information is kept confidential, unless the health of the baby or a family member is in question.
