Financial Assistance

Connected Forever provides financial assistance to families that have experienced time in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). We understand that time in the NICU is a traumatic experience for families and expenses can accumulate quickly. We wish to help families ease this burden.

Financial Distribution will vary depending on requests and availability. Funding will be distributed on an annual basis.

Parents, as well as family and friends can complete the application process. In order to qualify your/the child has to have spent time in a Nebraska hospital during 2018.

We ask that you include a letter detailing your/the families personal story. Please include the child’s birth story and medical journey, changes to your/their lifestyle and anything that will help us understand your/their personal struggle.

Funds will be paid directly to the requested company or organization. This can include living expenses, mortgage/rent, medical expenses, gas, breastfeeding supplies, lodging, food expenses, etc.

The application Deadline is February 15, 2019.

Applications will be reviewed by a committee and the awarded families will be notified by March 1, 2019.
