YSI’s Baring House Crisis Nursery program provides mothers, like Robin, and other caregivers safe, emergency, short term care for pre-school children.
Robin, a single mother of three children under the age of 7, living in West Philadelphia, has been using Baring House for her two eligible children while on a waiting list for a daycare facility. Having her children at Baring allowed her to continue to work from home with less interruption, leaving her with one child in remote school. This helped her continue to provide for her family during the pandemic. Baring House staff also connected the mother to YSI’s Family Empowerment program for additional support.
This mother’s day as you celebrate all the maternal people in your life, please consider a donation to support mothers in YSI programs, like Amy. See below for some of the ways that we put your gift to work.
