    First Step Receives Grant from March of Dimes

    First Step Receives $16,800 Grant from March of Dimes

    First Step Family Support Center has been awarded a $16,800 Community Grant from the March of Dimes Washington state chapter to fund the program “Safe Beds for Healthy Babies.”

    Safe Beds for Healthy Babies, a safe-sleep initiative to help prevent sudden infant death syndrome, provides education and materials to promote room sharing versus bed sharing.

    Parents watch an educational video about safe sleeping habits and are provided a free crib, crib sheet, children’s books and educational literature.

    Helps expand programs

    The March of Dimes grant gives First Step the ability to expand the program and more than double the families served in this program.

    This year, 160 families will receive a portable crib, crib sheet, book and educational materials.

    Providing cribs

    “We are grateful and excited about the ability to provide so many families with brand-new cribs for their babies,” said Nita Lynn, First Step’s executive director.

    “We received many telephone calls from parents who were in need of cribs for their babies, which is why we felt it necessary to seek other funding sources to build on this program.”

    Families currently served through other First Step programs, as well as families who live in Clallam County, are eligible to apply for a crib if they need one.

    First Step is also seeking donations of infant sleep sacks and other items that encourage healthy bedtime routines, like bath supplies.

    These items will also be provided to families who receive a free crib.

    For more information or to donate to First Step, phone 360-457-8355 or visit www.firststepfamily.org.
