SECU Family House
This 501(c)(3) non-profit program helps provide a comfortable and affordable place for patients and families undergoing treatment at NHRMC who may live out of town.
To ease the transition to becoming a big brother or big sister, the Auxiliary funds a free educational program for children of expectant mothers. Siblings ages 3 to 8 learn about infant care and get to tour the area where mom will give birth.
Each year, the NHRMC Auxiliary holds fundraising events to raise money for various areas of the organization. Money raised through these fundraisers have helped provide scholarships, materials for baby caps and blankets, a blanket warmer for the ED and teddy bears for all children having surgery.
