Our vision is that one day every child will have the essentials they need to feel safe, warm, ready to learn and valued.

About Us

Cradles to Crayons provides children from birth through age 12 living in homeless or low-income situations with the essential items they need to thrive—at home, at school, and at play. We supply these items free of charge by engaging and connecting communities that have with communities that need.
