Classes and Community

Our commitment to the well-being of children goes beyond our walls. We connect with kids, their families and their communities by advocating for child health, offering classes on topics such as puberty and babysitting, and providing free or low-cost safety and injury-prevention gear.

Safely Secure Your Child in the Car
Car crashes kill more children than any other kind of injury. Use the right car seat or booster seat to keep kids safer on the road.
