SECOND STORK gives women in crisis the basics to care for a newborn during the first crucial months of life.
Second Stork is dedicated to serving a very distinct and typically under-served group of women -- new mothers who find themselves in desperate need of practical, immediate support. We focus on direct and urgent material aid -- diapers, portable cribs and other essential-care items. Our goal, through the partnership of hospital social workers, is to provide assistance as soon as a mother's need becomes evident, with no red tape, no paperwork ... just immediate help. We currently serve 70 Minnesota hospitals, and will help 2,500 newborns in crisis this year.

"Second Stork has saved many newborns from sleeping on floors, couches, and/or air mattresses. Being able to give a child a SAFE place to sleep is pretty awesome and by partnering with Second Stork we at Regions are able to do that for some of our families. Our families who receive anything from Second Stork, diapers/pack n plays are so very grateful."

"I recently had a mom who lost her job during her pregnancy. Money was very tight and she also had a 2 year old. I was able to give her a Pack-n-Play and two packs of diapers to get her started. She has since been hooked up with resources and is doing amazing. Sometimes just a little help can make all the difference."
