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. 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.
