Room to Grow is dedicated to enriching the lives of babies born into poverty throughout their critical first three years of development. Parents are referred to Room to Grow by a network of prenatal programs assisting low-income families. Upon their referral, families visit Room to Grow's warm and inviting space once every three months from just before the birth of the baby until their child turns three. During their one-on-one appointments with our staff social workers, typically lasting two hours, parents receive developmental information, customized support, and all of the needed baby items to ensure a healthy and secure start for their child.
Room to Grow serves families raising babies in poverty in two locations; New York City and Boston. Founded in New York in 1998, the organization opened its Boston office in 2004. Each location partners with its local community for support, volunteers and client referrals.
