Family Assistance

What to Do If Your Family Needs Assistance

Contact One of Our Service Partners for Help

At Cradles to Crayons, our whole purpose is to help families like yours to get the everyday essentials your children need. To enable us to assist as many families as possible, Cradles to Crayons distributes our children’s items through our network of Service Partners who are already in the community, working directly with families.

There are two ways for you to obtain needed items from Cradles to Crayons:

  • If your family is already receiving services from one of our Service Partners, ask your social worker or case manager if they can place an order for you.
  • If you are not receiving services from a Cradles to Crayons Service Partner, get in touch with one of the organizations in the list below to see if you qualify for their services.
