Help families facing financial distress meet their babies’ basic needs by: (1) providing access to essential baby supplies and (2) connecting individuals with a variety of services aimed at supporting them during pregnancy and the first three years of parenthood, such as parenting support, child development education, financial literacy, and health and wellness.
WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO:
According to the Census Bureau, the poverty rate in New Jersey is at a 52 year high, and is expected to get worse.
630,000 children in New Jersey — 31.2 %— live in a household defined as poor, in a country where one out of three children lives in a family without securely employed parents. On average, families need an income of roughly twice the official poverty level to meet their basic needs, including housing, food, transportation, health and child care.
HOW WE SERVE:
- Through a network of partnerships with local service organizations, including we distribute donated baby supplies and essentials to local mothers in need of assistance.
- We host community drives (seven since 2011), serving an average of 50 families and more than 80 children per drive.
- Items distributed include diapers, wipes, clothes, shoes, nursing and bath supplies, maternity wear, toys, strollers, swings, pack n' plays, and much more!
