"Babies are especially vulnerable during the first few months of their lives. Being able to provide their baby with a safe bed and basic necessities increases the self-esteem of new mothers in need and makes for happier, more confident moms and dads."In order to receive baby items,  parents are required to attend a "Baby Shower" class, in the last trimester of your pregnancy. 

(You may take this class, up to three months after your baby is born.)

* We serve WA and Id low income families; expectant parents in their last trimester, and newborns up to age 3 months ONLY.
(For help with older kids please visit our resource page for local agencies.)
