Nurses for Newborns of Tennessee exists to provide a safety net for families most at-risk in order to prevent infant mortality, child abuse and neglect by providing in-home nursing visits which promote healthcare, education, and positive parenting skills.
Nurses for Newborns provides services to babies who are born with medical problems, born to teen moms or born to mothers with disabilities/ mental health concerns, or who are born into families who do not have money for even basic necessities.
In addition to medical care, we assist families whenever possible with donated materials needed for safe care, such as diapers, formula, baby food, clothing, and bedding. We welcome hundreds of volunteers each year who help us manage the logistics of this work.
