Safe Sleep Initiative Launched

Safe Sleep Initiative Launched
Our family support specialists work to provide the best parenting practice advice to our Every Child Succeeds clients at each visit. Safe sleep practices are critical in reducing infant injury and mortality. Cradle Cincinnati recently released this information with regard to infant mortality statistics in Cincinnati:

Sleep-related deaths are a silent issue in our community and they’re preventable. They are not seen as the threat they are.” — Melba Moore, City of Cincinnati Health Commissioner

The threat is real — as many as twenty babies died of sleep-related deaths in our community since the beginning of this year, mostly due to bed-sharing.

Pathways to Home assists all of our families in obtaining a crib/bassinet that provides a safe sleep environment for their newborn. We thank Greater Harrison Rotary for their recent donation to this cause. If you or your company would like to donate to this venture, contact us for information. As a nonprofit agency, we rely on community support to be able to completely fulfill our mission of building healthy, thriving families and we appreciate the support we receive.

Spreading the Holiday Spirit

Spreading the Holiday Spirit
Pathways to Home has 9 home visitors who serve 270 families and complete 350 visits each month. These visits assist families in promoting healthy parent-child interaction and in building self-sufficiency in order to end the cycle of poverty. During the holidays, we want to encourage our families to participate in the traditions that matter and those that are just plain fun too! Our goal is to provide an outfit and toy to each of the children we serve, but we need your help. If you would like to serve as an individual or corporate sponsor, please contact us at: bsmith@pathwaysharrison.org. Your generosity will make a positive difference for families in our community.

Second Pantry

Second Give & Take Pantry Planned
Pathways to Home will be partnering with a local entity to champion a second community Give & Take Pantry. Construction of the pantry is being completed by Diamond Oaks Construction Framing and Finishing Tech Program. Instructor, Kurt Helmers, willingly took on the project planning and building. The pantry will be completed and serving the community by December. We appreciate Diamond Oaks students and staff for their commitment to helping those in need and being on the front line of addressing food insecurity!
