Sometimes, making life-saving decisions can mean dealing with the financial consequences later. Noelle's Light delivers financial assistance to distressed families via two channels:
(1) institutional support and (2) direct family assistance.
Institutional Family Support
Noelle's Light partners with existing institutions - such as hospitals, social service organizations, and other nonprofits - that treat and care for families navigating a fetal diagnosis. Via these partnerships, Noelle's Light creates Family Support Funds that the institution may draw from to assist fetal families with a credible financial need.
For example, in 2019, Noelle's Light partnered with the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House (PRMH), establishing an $18,000 fund that social workers at PRMH utilized to aid struggling "fetal families" that were staying at their facility (up to $2,000 per family).

If you are an organization interested in forming a partnership with Noelle's Light to benefit the families you care for, contact us today.
(Available starting end of 2020)
Noelle's Light provides direct financial assistance, up to $5,000 per family, to families receiving treatment or care for a fetal condition and are financially distressed as a result.
Through our Direct-To-Family Support program, families in need fill out an application to Noelle's Light with the aid of a social worker from the medical facility they are receiving care. The application is then reviewed by our Review Committee, and funding is appropriated accordingly.
Please check back in early 2020 for all eligibility requirements and the release of our application.
