“Brains develop at lightning speed in the first three years of a life. A baby’s early experiences shape the brain’s architecture into a strong – or fragile – foundation for learning, health, and success in the workplace. Adverse early experience, such as poverty, can weaken babies’ brain development and follow them their entire lives.”
–National Center for Infants, Toddlers, and Families
Gear Up for Baby is our targeted initiative that focuses on providing the essential items children need from birth through age three – and also relieves stress on their parents.
