Play Therapy

Why Play Therapy?

Yet another way Mommies In Need is providing Childcare.  Community.  Compassion. 

Our mission is to support parents who are experiencing a health crisis.  We know one of the ways we can best support parents is to support their kids because a diagnosis is stressful for everyone in the family.
