Room to Grow
Room to Grow's mission is to close the opportunity gap for babies born into low-income circumstances throughout their critical first three years of development. They do this through parent coaching, essential material items and community referrals. The outcomes Room to Grow families achieve are powerful - 9 out of 10 children are meeting their developmental milestones on time.
For more than 20 years, Room to Grow’s three-year program has provided parents and caregivers with essential baby and toddler items, strategies and support to promote their children’s development, and connections to community resources that can meaningfully expand their support network. Their dynamic, wrap-around approach addresses the multitude of needs facing parents raising children in these earliest years, and provides the surest opportunity for establishing a strong foundation in life.
13 Visits Over 3 Years
Families have their first visit during their last trimester of pregnancy. From there, they meet one-on-one with program staff every three months until their children turn three. Each visit is two hours long and is held at one of their Family Centers in Boston or New York.
