At Mommies In Need, our first concern is for the health and safety of you and your children. At this time out of an abundance of caution of COVID-19, we are pausing service to all in-home families effective immediately. We will not be able to take new applications at this time; but please check back with us soon. 

In-Home Program

For families that qualify, Mommies In Need provides full-time, in-home nannies at no cost, for up to six months.


We also connect parents and children with resources to help cope with the unique challenges of these health situations and with other families facing similar difficulties. 

How to Qualify

  • The person who is ill is the primary caregiver to one or more children. Priority is given to parents who need full-time care for children under the age of 5. 

  • Health crisis is something that temporarily disables the parent and prevents them from providing care to their children. 

  • For longer-term illnesses or treatment plans, care can be provided for no more than 3-6 months during which time it will be up to the family to arrange a long-term childcare solution.  

  • No specific income level is required for help. 

  • Families must reside in Dallas, Denton, or Collin Counties. 

Application Process
