Substance use is a leading risk factor for child abuse and neglect. Hushabye Nursery’s mission is to embrace substance exposed babies and their caregivers with compassionate, evidence-based care that changes the course of their entire lives. Hushabye Nursery is honored to be chosen as a 2021 Child Abuse Prevention and Advocacy License Plate Grant Awardee. Funding will be used to prevent child abuse and neglect for Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) babies in Arizona.

Through the License Plate Program we are awarding $375K in grant funding to 10 #AZ organizations to support victims of child abuse and neglect. Grateful for the critical services & support these organizations continue to provide for our most vulnerable. Thank you!
