Additional Funding Priorities
The Fragile Newborn Developmental Care Fund was established in 2002 to support family-centered care and help provide developmentally appropriate care to the babies treated in the newborn intensive care unit (NICU). As the only regional perinatal center in the Bronx, we care for more than 900 babies a year in our NICUs. Supporting the Fragile Newborn Developmental Care Fund is a wonderful way to remember or honor someone you love, or to thank the NICU staff. Donations to the Fragile Newborn Developmental Care Fund help provide for the ongoing needs in our NICUs. Your donations help the staff provide the best care and help make life better for the babies and families.
The Healthy Steps program focuses on mothers and their children from birth through age 5, working to improve their outcomes for physical and mental health through preventive screening, assessments, counseling and interventions.
In a separate facility from CHAM, a compassionate and specially trained staff provides emergency care and support to young victims of abuse or neglect and counseling to their families. Butler Center is the New York area's only certified medically based child advocacy center. We offer families one-stop care that helps children heal after neglect, battery and sexual abuse.
Montefiore New Rochelle and Schaffer Extended Care Center welcome the generosity of youth volunteers to create meaningful and sustainable experiences for the elder residents in our care. We offer flexible weekday after school and weekend hours, an opportunity for families to volunteer together and an opportunity to improve the quality of life for elder residents and create a meaningful intergenerational experience.
OB/GYN & Women’s Health
For more than four decades, the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology and Women's Health at Montefiore Medical Center has been at the forefront of women's healthcare. We provide a full range of services at more than 20 convenient locations in the Bronx and Westchester County, responding to the physical, reproductive and mental health needs of women at all stages of life.
Phoebe H. Stein Child Life Program
Child Life Specialists provide emotional and psychological support to recovering children and adolescents. The staff of the Phoebe H. Stein Child Life Program familiarizes young patients with hospital surroundings, informing them about their illness and treatment in an age-appropriate manner. Child Life Specialists also structure therapeutic recreation programs in art, music and writing.
We believe that all children deserve healthcare and justice. As a nationally-recognized medical-legal partnership, we work to facilitate access to medical care and enhance the role of medicine and mental health in legal services. By promoting the well-being of immigrant children through direct services and advocacy, we seek to strengthen local communities and inform public policy. Terra Firma aspires to empower immigrant children to develop resilience, attain stability, and reach their full potential.
