Warm Hearts Warm Babies provides clothing, blankets, and other essential items to premature and newborn infants, and young children in crisis, free of charge.
Warm Hearts Warm Babies, Inc. received 501 (c) 3 status in September 2000 with 5 board members and approximately 60 volunteers. We previously had been serving the babies of Colorado since 1998 as a chapter of the organization Newborns In Need out of Missouri. Our board decided we could best serve the babies in Colorado as a state based organization. We found there was a very needed but sad need to offer burial clothing to premature babies that did not make it, still born babies of all sizes, and babies that died of complications. These packets are requested by the hospitals and kept on hand. There is a packet that goes home with the mother that includes a handkerchief for a mother's tears, and envelope for a picture or bracelet, an angel, and a blanket or outfit, besides a burial outfit. No new mother expects this to happen but at least they leave with something.
