Help Baby Buggy to Scale Up in other Cities
Baby Buggy in Our headquarters are in New York City by Katherine Snider
In 2011, Baby Buggy expanded its reach outside of NYC by opening a warehouse in LA and hiring a p/t coordinator there.We currently have 5 sites that we serve in LA, as well as a Friends of Baby Buggy group and 7 drop off sites.We would like to replicate this model in at least two additional cities.We are currently making donations of new corporate gear to select sites in Dallas, Chicago, Atlanta+Washington DC. We would like to scale up this work with even more donations of to these areas
We serve some of America's most vulnerable families: 12% survived domestic violence 27% of the children have special needs 30% are homeless
We tie our donations to parental particpation in strong anti-poverty programs like Nurse-Family Partnership.In this way, we help provide for the immediate needs of a child, while their parents get the support they need to become more self-sufficient (goals include improving credit scores, getting GED, better housind, etc) in the long run.
