Community Baby Shower

It takes a village to raise a child, but it takes a compassionate community to help new moms prepare for motherhood.

Parenthood can be overwhelming for anyone. From nutrition, to developmental milestones, to safe sleep, there is a lot for new parents to learn and oftentimes contradictory information to sort through. That’s where our community – friends, family, and caring neighbors – comes in to provide a little extra support.

The Community Baby Shower connects new and expecting parents experiencing economic hardship with maternal and early childhood education and resources, as well as gifts, food, and friendship. Hosted by the Women United, this annual celebration will help more than 200 families get a stronger start this year.

How You can get involved

Support a new parent by donating directly to the event. We strive to provide on-site resources, educational trainings and gifts to the new parents, funding remains our most critical need.

Run an item drive or Visit our Amazon Wish-List to help supply gifts and the items in the baby box we will provide to the new mothers. All item drives must be completed and delivered by Monday, June 4, 2018.
