You Can Help a Critically Ill Baby







The Jackson Chance Foundation is an Illinois non-for-profit, tax exempt 501(c) (3) organization dedicated to providing resources to families with babies in neonatal intensive care unites (NICU). Our mission is to provide support to NICU families, allowing them to spend more time with their baby.

By contributing to the Jackson Chance Foundation, you help families be with their critically ill child, thus enriching and potentially extending their life. More...




DID YOU KNOW?

  • Most families spend months in the NICU? Not weeks or days.
  • For a mother and father to spend a fraction of the time they would spend with their baby if at home, it would cost over $1100/month in parking alone!
  • To see your critically ill child daily it cost more than the avg monthly mortgage or rent payment!

  • 44 NICU beds
  • Average occupancy is 87.5%
  • 52% of families are on Medicaid
  • The average length of stay is 28 days




"High parking and public transportation cost often hinders the ability of parents to visit their babies who often required months of the highest level of neonatal intensive care. The initiative to fully fund parents transportation cost will remove the major barrier to parental visitation. More frequent hospital visits will facilitate parental-infant bonding, encourage timely communication with the medical team, and reduce parental anxiety."
