If you’re looking for ways to get involved and volunteer your time:
Little Timmy is looking for all types of volunteer positions. They will need staffing and volunteers for The Little Mom Stop. This might include doctors/midwives, nurses, educators, doulas, community health workers, mental health professionals, etc. Their goal is to hold training sessions and classes on and off the mobile unit. They also are looking for anyone who has a general interest or passion for women and children’s health.
