Our Provider Partners
End of Year CLOSURE:
WestSide Baby will be CLOSED December 16, 2020 – January 4, 2021, to conduct inventory and allow for staff to take time off.
Important 2021 Dates
Monday, January 4, 2021
First day to schedule appointments and submit orders for 2021.
Tuesday, January 12, 2021
First appointment available to pick up items for 2021.
Phase II Information:
At this time, WestSide Baby will be providing the most needed basic items to provider partners every Tuesday from 9 am-1 pm at our White Center Hub. In an effort to keep staff and the wider community safe, WestSide Baby is requiring each provider to schedule a 15-minute appointment window. Please see your email for details.
At this time we are limiting the items we are offering to what we are hearing is most needed. Emergency supplies including diapers, wipes, hygiene items, and formula will be available to pick up during your scheduled appointment and will not require orders to be submitted in advance. Any requests for equipment must be ordered in advance in addition to scheduling an appointment.
Who are WestSide Baby’s “Provider Partners”?
WestSide Baby envisions a day when all children are equipped with the basic items they need to grow into healthy, happy, and resilient members of our community. In order to do that, WestSide Baby partners with more than 100 social service agencies and 400+ agency workers throughout King County to provide essential items to local children free of charge. Our partners span multiple disciplines and social services areas including public health, social work, food security, domestic violence, early learning, infant mental health, education and more. Research supports that the agency partnership model has many positive implications for both the partner agencies and the recipients including increased communication between providers and clients, client program retention, and connection to other services—all of which ultimately contribute to lasting, positive outcomes for families.
How does it work?
Currently registered WestSide Baby provider partners request items for their clients through an online ordering system. WestSide Baby staff and volunteers fill orders for the requested basic items and hope to be able to fill them completely. Because we are a donation-based nonprofit, we are not always able to fully fill orders but do our best to ensure children have the items they need to be safe, warm and dry. Once the requests are filled, our incredible partners pick the items up from WestSide Baby’s Hub or South Lake Union Branch and then take them to their clients.
