Through our Transportation Program, we partner with hospitals to provide complimentary parking passes for families with critically ill babies in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). Parking fees at NICU’s can cost more than $1,000 a month – forcing many parents to make unthinkable choices, like whether to see their baby, or pay their monthly rent or mortgage. In fact, just one day of visitor parking, at a top level III or IV NICU can cost upwards of $75. Can you imagine having to pay a fee every time you wanted to see your baby in the hospital?
At Jackson Chance Foundation, we give families access to the best hospitals, neonatal specialists, surgical abilities and nursing staff that they otherwise may have to turn down because of the high cost of parking. We give families the freedom to stop by the NICU on their lunch break, to come before work to say, “good morning”, and to make it back for a kiss goodnight, or to allow someone to be there 24/7, without having to think about the price tag. See the impact we’ve had on NICU families since our inception in 2012.
