At NISSA, we help teach you how to protect your infant during sleep. We provide comfort and support to families affected by Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) & other unexpected deaths of an infant. We also educate the public and professionals on how to reduce the risk of sudden infant death.

Our work is so important - especially to our African American and Native American families because they are affected in far greater numbers. Please spread the word that infants should always sleep on their backs.

 News and Announcements

We are gearing up for our annual auction this October. If you know any businesses or organizations willing to support our cause please let the office know.

On Mother's Day and throughout the year, we offer comfort to those who have lost a child and we honor and remember your babies.
