Through the "Welcome Baby Program," Circle of Hope provides brand new diaper bags stocked with newborn essentials to babies born to homeless mothers. The bags include items essential to caring for an infant, from wipes to onesies and more. By providing these fully-stocked bags to moms with new babies, Circle of Hope helps babies get a strong and healthy start in life. In 2018, we gave Welcome Baby Bags to 100 homeless newborns. Circle of Hope also provides brand new porta-cribs to homeless parents, giving their babies a safe and comfortable place to sleep while in shelter and transitioning into permanent housing.
