It all started with my own

experience as a mom.

Parents In Need began in 2012 in response to the growing need for assistance in Hampton Roads. 

There are so many families that are suffering silently behind closed doors and they don't know where to turn for help with meeting the needs of their young children. Some of these families may qualify for "traditional" assistance, but many do not.


They may need help for a season (between jobs, dealing with an illness, etc).

Parents in Need offers assistance to families during challenging times.


We have a free annual outreach which is open to any family within our community who needs help. We offer every essential (and many non essentials!) for kids aged NB-6 yrs. old.  Parents in Need has helped over 7000 local children!

The Parents In Need shop in Chesapeake is open by appointment only select days of the month. Please apply here online.
