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. So we can assist as many families as possible, we give out these items through our network of Service Partners who are already in the community.

During this pandemic, we recognize that some of our service partners listed below may not be fully operational. To ensure families can continue to receive the services and essential items they need, we have compiled an updated list of COVID-19 community resources for you to easily access. Please access the resource guide here

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 to 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.
