I have worked with Caiden's Hope for a few years now and have truly enjoyed every experience. This is a unique charity that helps with the living expenses of the families with babies in NICU. I have seen first hand the direct support that CH gives and been very blessed to be a part of it.
I was asked to volunteer for a fundraiser for Caiden's Hope by a fellow church member who had used their services when their son was born premature. Having experienced the stresses related to my grandson being born premature 2 years ago, I quickly said 'Yes'. During the fundraiser I met the founder of Caiden's Hope and was impressed with his heart and zeal to help parents of preemies with the small things they need to relieve their financial burdens during their child's hospital stay. I intend to volunteer again for the fundraiser, as well as donate to this worthy cause.
My daughter was born at 1 lb and 10 oz and spent 173 days in the NICU. After she was released from the hospital, my friend told me about Caiden's Hope and I signed up to be a volunteer. It is truly amazing what this charity does to help families with a baby in the NICU.
Our son, Nathaniel, was born 3 months premature with non-immune hydrops. He spent 99 days in the NICU and we lived an hour away but we did all we could to see him every single day. It was only after our son was home from the NICU and we went searching for a way to help other NICU families that we came across Caidens Hope. We spoke with Wayne Keller and got to know their hearts and decided to give back to this foundation who does so much for families in need and have never looked back. The Keller family is friendly and wise and every person involved in Caidens Hope has a heart of gold. They truly help so many families when they need it most. I can tell you from experience what an impact it makes to a family surviving the NICU to have just a little help but Caidens Hope goes far and beyond "little" and finds the way to make a big difference in the lives of every family they come into contact with. Beyond financial help...they truly give hope in a time that hope is scarcely available. They provide families with the ability to see their fragile children in the NICU to do life-changing kangaroo care and create a bond that can never be broken. When it feels like everyone around you is telling you not to get your hopes up (for your child's life) Caidens Hope comes in and says, "Here's money for traveling, parking, and food so you have less to worry about it". More people need to know about Caidens Hope and more families can receive help. Families should hear about all the ways Caidens Hope can help them before they leave the hospital!
It's been a pleasure raising money for them and seeing the impact on our community as well. I'll be fundraising and donating to Caidens Hope for the rest of its existence (which I hope is a very very long time). God bless you Caidens Hope!
These people are the most caring folks that would do whatever it takes, roll up their sleeves, and put on a smile to make a difference to a parent in need. They have participated in so many grassroots fundraisers, festivals, and outreach events just to let others know who they are and spread awareness in the community. God Bless Caiden's Hope!
Almost every day Caiden's Hope hears of another young family needing help so they can personally care for their precious premature infant hospitalized in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
It's wonderful how our supporters nationwide dig deep into their pockets to help families they don't know.
One out of every eight babies born in the USA is born premature and their parents need our assistance. Thanks to our supporters we are able t provide them a brief respite from the stress they are under.
The Management of this organization is top notch! They go above and beyond to find ways to raise funds to be able to assist those in need. I must admit I had never really thought about all the hardships faced by families of Premies, this organization is raising community awareness of those hardships.
This is such an amazing, dedicated organization and I am happy to be such a small part; so many families that I am both directly and indirectly involved with are so blessed and helped by the care an financial assistance from this wonderful organization. Hope everyone that sees or hears about this great work gets involved to keep making a difference in not only children's lives but their families as well. May God continue to bless and provide resources.
