Serving Needy Newborns in Southwest Washington

We are an all-volunteer ministry that depends on the love and generosity of many people.

Our goal is to enhance the well-being of these babies and their families

*Physically:

by ensuring that every baby born in Clark County, Washington has a layette and a car seat.

*Emotionally:

by reducing the burdens and anxieties of the mothers.

*Intellectually:

by providing a picture book and tips on reading with children.

*Spiritually:

by offering examples of home prayers for little children.

Thank you to the Clark County Quilters and all
who bought raffle tickets for this beautiful quilt.
They raised $5373.25 for Babies In Need.
This will help significantly to meet our $10,000
annual budget item for car seats, providing
safety and comfort for the newest and smallest
residents of Clark County. The quilt was the
culmination of over two years of work by the
Clark County Quilters. Many of their members
have also made beautiful crib quilts for our
babies for years.
