The mission of Baby Steps, founded in 2001, is to improve the health and well being of families, pregnant women and young children by motivating individuals to use services that benefit their families. To fulfill its mission, Baby Steps aims to: Educate parents and caregivers about services that strengthen families in the communities that are served by the coupon partners .Motivate parents, caregivers, and grandparents to actively participate and utilize partner services to strengthen families .Increase and/or maintain the number of partners who provide services to families with children. Develop Baby Steps Closets in outlying locations. To fulfill these goals, Baby Steps collaborates with social, medical, dental and educational services (approximately 200 individual service providers) that serve and strengthen families. This provides a strong base of support from the community. The network that has developed out of these professional partnerships provides a strong support for families and ensures that Baby Steps is a centralized clearinghouse that provides a wealth of information to parents and caregivers about partners' programs in the area.
Prepared in partnership with Baby Steps by the Community Assistantship Program (CAP), administered by the Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA) at the University of Minnesota.
