New Baby Box Program starts Dec. 2017!
Family Place is rolling out a new program to support the newest parents on the island. Every family with a newborn baby can receive a baby box.
The baby boxes give new parents an easily transportable cardboard sleeping box with mattress to ensure that each baby always has a safe, secure place to sleep. The boxes will include two parenting books, onesies, a sleep sack, washcloths, materials from local businesses and all types of necessities to welcome the newest Islanders.
The VYFS baby boxes will be distributed by a bilingual Family Advocate through the Family Place. The Family Advocate will promote community awareness of the program, develop community partners to sustain it, and deliver baby boxes and valuable information and resources to new parents, with a focus on outreach to the Latino community.
Are you expecting or do you have a newborn baby? Please contact us to learn more!
