Families First

The Families First Fund is a charitable fund administered by Tri-State Multiples, Inc. (TSM) that assists families of Higher Order Multiple Birth Children (triplets or more) experiencing extreme financial need. In the past, TSM has assisted families with such needs as therapy expenses, wheelchairs and other equipment, special care formula, and burial expenses.

THE FAMILIES FIRST FUND

According to the March of Dimes nearly all triplets and other higher-order multiples are born prematurely (before 37 weeks), leading to a higher risk of complications.  Dealing with these medical issues can prove costly even to families with ample health insurance. 

Tri-State Multiples created the Families First Fund to help those families in need.  

On an annual basis in December, the Executive Board accepts and reviews nominations and vote on distributions. Upon request, nominees would be considered at other times during the calendar year if the need is immediate.  Families in need can either complete the application themselves or they can be nominated by another HOM family.

Application can be found here: Families First Fund Application

 ELIGIBILITY:

  • Applicant MUST BE a parent or guardian of higher order multiples (including surviving or deceased children)
  • Have an extreme financial need
  • Complete an application for assistance

Submit the application by the deadline to president@tristatemultiples.com
