They Wait for Your Help

The BBA will do more than provide a quick fix for babies born addicted. We will strive to support and work with others to fix the larger systemic problem of substance abuse and empower others to live better lives.

About our Foundation


The BBA Foundation | Babies Born Addicted is a 501(c)3 and 509(a)3 charitable organization that raises funds to purchase medical supplies and comfort aids for newborns with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) to ease suffering during the painful withdrawal and detox process.

Our history

The BBA began as a 50/50 raffle at car and bike shows in the St. Louis Metropolitan area. With the overwhelming support from big-hearted car and motorcycle enthusiasts, the BBA has grown into a 100% volunteer-driven organization.
