Welcome Baby packages contain necessities, not luxuries.

Each package contains the critical items needed to support a newborn’s healthy growth and development in the first four weeks of life, thereby reducing the physical, financial, and emotional consequences for low-income families.

Packages were developed in consultation with hospitals, clinics, health care providers, and mothers.

Who receives the Welcome Baby package?

 

Welcome Baby serves women and families living below the poverty line who struggle to afford the most basic essentials on an ongoing basis.

Welcome Baby donates its newborn packages to NYU Langone Hospital, Mt. Sinai Hospital, and Northern Manhattan Perinatal Partnership, in New York; and Mercy Health and the Mahoning County Board of Health, in Ohio.

Since 2018, we’ve provided up to 30 Welcome Baby packages to new mothers and babies each month through these care providers.

Hospital social workers and trained community health workers determine which women have the greatest need and distribute the Welcome Baby packages accordingly.

Given the overwhelming response, we know there are thousands more who are in need.
