Story of Lily's Place
Enduring July 2021-July 2023
This session will talk about how we identified a need in our community – the increased illicit drug use and babies being born prenatally exposed to substances causing withdrawal. Describe how Lily’s Place got started and discuss the population of people we care for. Explore what we do at Lily’s Place to help the babies and families during this process including a definition of NAS and a description of the care we provide for infants experiencing NAS and their families. Discuss our plans for future growth to continue to meet the needs of our community.
