Whether you are a donor, volunteer, friend or family connected to Safe Babies Healthy Families (SBHF), YOU are a valued member of our team. And we are thrilled to announce that we became a member of the Easter Seals family as of January 1, 2016! This merger fosters a much-needed connection to vital services for families who have a child with special needs, or for parents who need job placement support.
In addition, every year more than a million children will enter school with an undiagnosed developmental delay. Easter Seals wants to change that. As a leading provider of child developmental services, the Make The First Five Count program focuses on children’s five key growth areas during the critical years before children start kindergarten. We want to partner with parents in raising a healthy and happy child and ensure that all children start school with the right skills to succeed alongside their peers.
In combining forces with Easter Seals, our program will be able to reach even MORE at-risk children and families, providing them with the critical support and help they need.
There has been no interruption in services with this merger, and our team of professional case managers remains intact providing continuity and program expertise. Nancy Major has joined Easter Seals as Vice President of Community Engagement. Three SBHF Board Officers have joined the Easter Seals Board of Directors, ensuring SBHF’s mission and program integrity will remain a strong and vibrant resource for those it serves.
