Challenge

This project addresses the high cost of providing for infants and young children for families living in poverty. It will be located in the Bronx, the poorest urban county in the United States. This project will; give needed resources to families, off-set the high cost of providing for infants and young children, reduce the damage to young children caused by the stress of living in poverty. It will link these families to volunteers who will teach basic budgeting to the families.

Solution

Baby Buggy provides essential items for infants and children to New York City families living in poverty. We accomplish this by collecting new and gently used items from corporations and families and delivering them to the communities with the highest rates of family poverty. Working with a network of social service sites throughout the five boroughs of New York, bringing cribs, strollers, clothing and diapers to families in need, we have delivered over 2,600,000 items to date.
This project provides clothing, gear and products for infants and young children, coupled with family budgeting classes, to needy families enrolled in an early education program in the Bronx.

Long-Term Impact

This project will serve 60 families living in a community where over 67% of the children are born into poverty. By offering family budgeting classes and regular donations of clothing, diapers and equipment, we positively affect families’ lives.
