A Precious Child collects donated new and gently-used baby gear and distributes items to families in the most need through our Resource Center. A Precious Child also collects donated new diapers, wipes, baby food, formula and other baby necessities so families don’t have to ration or go without for their babies. Families are referred to our Resource Center by our Agency Partners, including schools, human services organizations, churches, hospitals, safe houses, fire and police departments, at-risk youth centers, mental health and foster care organizations and homeless shelters.
Once referred, clients call and make an appointment with a Client Outcomes Advocate to come shop for the basic essentials they need in a welcoming store-like setting with no cost to families.
In addition to baby essentials, A Precious Child also provides “Bright By Three” kits that offer parents of children newborn to 3 years of age with tools, information and resources to empower them to be the first and most influential teacher in their child’s life.
