TEACUP Preemie Program
 

Premature infants are three times more likely to suffer abuse than a full-term baby due to their medical complications. Babies born too soon, often face serious health and medical complications. On average, one in seven babies born in Palm Beach County is premature.

Our Solution

We begin with preemies

The Problem

Through our Teacup Preemie Program we provide resources and support to lower income parents of premature infants fighting for survival in the Neonatal Intensive Care Units at Wellington Regional Medical Center, St. Mary’s Medical Center and Bethesda Hospital East.  We partner with distraught, overwhelmed, financially stressed parents and pair them with the appropriate medical providers and community services necessary to ensure the well-being of their premature baby.  Support groups are available to families at all three hospitals. We also provide hospital grade breast pumps to mothers in need, as breast milk reduces health problems like gut rot in preemies and fosters bonding between mother and preemie. 

The leading source for child abuse prevention.

The Children's Healing Institute is the leading source for child abuse prevention and family crisis management expertise in South Florida. We partner, on a long-term basis, with at-risk families referred to us by schools, hospitals, police and other community agencies. The families we serve ask for our help, and we are committed to protecting children by helping their parents.

We're good for kids.
