A Precious Child collects donated new and gently-used baby gear and distributes them to families in the most need through our Resource Center. A Precious Child also collects donated new diapers, wipes, diaper cream, bottles, baby food and formula so families don’t have to ration or go without for their babies. Families are referred to our Resource Center by our agency partners which include schools, human services organizations, churches, hospitals, safe houses, fire and police departments, at-risk youth centers, homeless shelters, mental health and foster care organizations.
Once referred, families call and make an appointment to come in and shop for the essential baby items they need in a welcoming store-like setting, all provided at no charge.
In addition to baby essentials, A Precious Child also provides “Bright By Three” kits that offer parents of children Newborn-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.
