About My Business:

 

The Tiny Miracles Foundation (TTMF) is a pioneering volunteer-based not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing comprehensive support and assistance to families with premature infants in the greater Fairfield County, Connecticut area, and to helping our local neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) provide the best possible care for premature patients and their families. With the crisis of preterm birth on the rise, TTMF strives to improve the lives and outcomes of premature babies and their families, and to address a serious and growing community need that is virtually unmet by any other organization. Founded in 2004 by two local mothers of severely premature twins, The Tiny Miracles Foundation offers vital support to families facing the crisis of a premature birth. Both of these mothers felt terrified and isolated as they rode the emotional “preemie roller coaster” coping with their fragile babies’ tremendous medical complications and illnesses. While the hospitals provided excellent medical care, the mothers found very little emotional or practical support geared toward helping families with premature babies. From these mothers’ difficult experiences came the birth of TTMF. Through their network of other preemie mothers they had met during their NICU journeys, they created our organization to ensure that no parents of a babies born too early need to face the crisis of a premature birth alone. Today, The Tiny Miracles Foundation assists over 1200 local families per year throughout Fairfield County through programs at our three partner hospitals in Danbury, Stamford, Norwalk and Bridgeport, and services to the community at large. These services are delivered by our over one hundred volunteers dedicated to helping families with premature babies. Support provided by TTMF volunteers who have personally experienced the premature birth of a baby, the complications that arise, the challenges families face, and in sad cases, the loss of a precious tiny miracle, is invaluable to these families and is one of the many things that makes TTMF so special.
