During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
First Candle is committed to the elimination of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, Sudden Unexpected Infant Death and preventable Stillbirths through education and research while providing support for grieving families who have suffered a loss.
Ever year in the United States, 27,000 babies die from SIDS, accidental suffocation and stillbirth. Through our program, Straight Talk for Infant Safe Sleep, we educate nurses, daycare providers, social workers, parents and family members about the importance of creating a safe sleep environment for babies and following the AAP's Safe Sleep Guidelines. We also host a grief line, online support groups and peer support volunteers to help families who have experienced a loss.
