For Babies, Pregnant Moms & Caregivers Who Survived Hurricane Katrina

Horizontal Divider 1

SHOW YOUR LOVE:
Please donate diapers, baby items, used cell phones, hair supplies (especially shampoo, conditioner, oils, hair gel, brushes & combs), whatever you can...

Sunday, September 4, 2005, we began this site...We pray that it helps you.

FIND MISSING FAMILY & FRIENDS

Thank you for caring enough to come looking for a chance to help the youngest victims of Hurricane Katrina.  Or if you are a pregnant mom or a caregiver who is now enduring the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, we pray that you will be able to use this site over and over again to get through and over the stress and tragedy.  You are a survivor and we want to help. 
 
Here we will constantly update links to organizations and efforts throughout the U.S. and the world who focus on helping arguably the most vulnerable Hurricane Katrina Victims -- babies and children aged 0-5, their caregivers, and pregnant women.  For older children and students (including college students affected), we will include links for help and resources.

Diapers, help finding housing, help with medicine and prenatal vitamins, maternity clothes and layettes, coloring books and items to occupy little ones, school supplies...all of these are urgently needed by the survivors right now.  The Red Cross is the primary place you should go to donate much-needed cash at www.redcross.org or 1-800-HELP-NOW (1-800-435-7669). 
 
IN PARTICULAR, donations of diapers, baby bottle supplies, unopened prenatal vitamins, maternity clothes, baby carriers (snuglis, umbrella strollers, etc.), unopened formula and/or baby cereal, old working cell phones with donated time (prepaid at Dollar General, etc.): These things will be of practical help to families with young children.  Please check expiration dates.
 
BUT if you can't donate cash but you DO have items and/or clothing to spare, please go through our list of organizations to see where you might want to take those things.  And please just donate as soon as you can. 
 
Every hour counts with a baby, as you probably already now.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to help the youngest victims of Hurricane Katrina -- the babies, the unborn children, the infants, toddlers and preschoolers whose caregivers will not necessarily be able to get a break from their special needs as they themselves must cope with tragic loss, ongoing stress, and an uncertain future.

If you have items and/or help you want to list on this site, please enter your information below.  NOTE TO SURVIVORS: Please be careful, however, with offers for housing, etc.  We are not able to do background checks, so please use caution.
