What does it mean to be a Partner of Cribs for Kids?
Since 1998, Cribs for Kids® has been providing safe-sleep education to families with the intervention of a safe, portable crib to those who cannot otherwise afford a safe place for their babies to sleep. Our goal is to help you provide safe sleep education and environments to families in need in your area as well. Our hope is that together we can change the culture surrounding safe sleep.
Sparking a culture of change takes a movement. We believe that, together with our partners, we can create a movement that will end Sudden Unexplained Infant Death. Through widespread education efforts, ongoing research, and changes in legislation, this dream can someday become a reality. As a Cribs for Kids Partner, you join us in our mission of helping every baby sleep safer. Together we are the soldiers of change.
