The mission of Lily’s Place is to care for babies prenatally exposed to drugs while also providing non-judgmental support, training, education, and resources to families. With increased funding and strategic partnerships, there is an opportunity to expand services for both mother and baby. Lily’s Place believes in a holistic approach to wellness; therefore, they provide for infants going through withdrawal while also caring for mothers dealing with the environmental issues of having a NAS baby. In order for babies to have a prosperous life, their mothers need direct care and attention as well.
Lily’s Place has received national and international attention as other entities are looking to replicate their model of care. The conversation surrounding NAS is becoming increasingly more widespread and the services provided at Lily’s Place are tailored directly to combat this epidemic.
