The mission of Room to Grow is to enrich the lives of babies born into poverty throughout their critical first three years of development. Parents expecting a baby are referred to Room to Grow by selected prenatal programs assisting low-income families.

Upon their referral, parents 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.

Volunteer Opportunities

-Weekly Inventory Sorting Opportunities -
We are consistently in need of reliable volunteers to help organize and prepare our inventory of infant and toddler clothing, toys, books and equipment. This is a great opportunity for students, retirees or new parents. A minimum of two hours per visit, from Mondays through Fridays, 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. is required.

- Seasonal Switch -
Twice a year we switch our entire inventory with the change of seasons and always need volunteers to help.

- Organize A Collection Drive -
Room to Grow holds dozens of in-kind collection drives per year through schools, churches, synagogues, mommies' groups, businesses and other organizations. Organize a collection drive at your place of business, child's school or other affiliation. It is easy and rewarding! Room to Grow's staff can help you with the details.

If you are interested in any of the above opportunities, please call 617.859.4545.
