Doctors and nurses (specifically labor and delivery teams) are our biggest advocates. They help connect us to the families we serve by handing out our cards and letting families know who we are and how we can help. Without their amazing support we would not be able to fulfill our mission.
If you are a doctor or a nurse and have some questions about our organization, here are some insights and information you might find helpful. If there are questions not answered on this page, feel free to contact us by clicking on this link. Contact
How do I get more Charlie's Hands and Feet cards to hand out to my patients?
It's simple, just contact us here and let us know your name, where you work and how to best deliver them to you.
Do you come visit the families in person at the hospital?
Most often times, yes. First the family contacts us via email or phone, telling us their story and letting us know what there needs are. We then always try to have face-to-face interactions with the family, where we can hand off the resources — such as gift cards, coupons or food — in person. However, this doesn't always take place at the hospital. It's whenever the family is ready to contact us and, sometimes, that might mean at their home or at another location after they've left the hospital.
What kinds of cases do you work with?
We work with families who have lost their child either through miscarriage, stillbirth or infant death. In our experience, we have found several families face these terrible events without support, are silenced by stigma and face unexpected financial troubles. Our mission is to make sure they have support to meet their immediate needs, a community to encourage them and help them process their grief openly, and connect them to other resources in Central Arkansas.
