Jessica Wade is the founding President and CEO of Mighty Little Giants (MLG), a National 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that advocates through providing support, education and hope for mothers and fathers experiencing pre-term deliveries resulting in long-term stays in the hospitals’ NICU. MLG’s mission is to bridge and stand in the gap for families with babies in the NICU by embracing MLG’s core values – Integrity, Compassion and Encouragement – ultimately giving them peace and becoming their light during their dark and difficult season.
In addition to the NICU support services, MLG provides monthly peer-to-peer mentoring, emergency financial support, as well as life after the NICU life skills. Mrs. Wade has spent the last 10 years working in her community, advocating for under-served women, children and families. She is a devoted wife, a Mother of two, a Mentor, a full-time Enrollment & Outreach Specialist in the Antelope Valley, as well as a Sunday School teacher. She’s also a Certified Lactation Education Specialist (CLES) as well as a Certified Doula. Her passion for NICU families and mothers experiencing pre-term births developed as a result of her personal experience of being hospitalized on total bed-rest for eight weeks, prior to delivering her first son 12-weeks prematurely. Once her son was released from the NICU after his 143-day stay, she made a promise to God that she would do everything in her power to help families that experience similar situations
