President and founder of BabiesNow! Foundation, Roberta Greengard, announced its board of directors has selected 11 Denver metro no-profit agencies to receive grants totaling $11,250. The agencies are Developmental Pathways, Inc., Children’s Hospital “CAMP” (Colorado Adolescent Maternity Program), Boulder County Public Health “Genesis,” The Institute for Children’s Mental Disorders, Growing Home, Youth With a Vision, Doctor’s Care, Warren Village, Parenting Place, Florence Crittenton Services and the St. Vrain Family Center.
“We are a very unique nonprofit in that we work with more than a dozen beneficiary organizations locally who provide various social services to parents in exchange for much needed baby diapers and wipes the family cannot otherwise afford,” said Greengard.
One in three Colorado families lack adequate quantities of diapers and baby wipes which can lead to abuse and very stressful situations for the entire family. Greengard added, “Our beneficiary agencies are reporting the incentives we offer of donated baby diapers and wipes and/or grant funding to purchase diapers and wipes for their program participants in exchange for parenting education and other family services are working well to help improve the child-parent relationship which benefits our entire community.”
