What families need

Home Visits

The Home Visit Program matchs families and their newborns with carefully-screened and trained volunteers who visit during the often difficult postpartum period, 100% for free. 

The volunteers help out with things like:

  • dishes
  • laundry
  • playing with older siblings
  • or just holding the baby so the parent can take a shower. 

Many of our volunteers have personal and professional experience with the real-life difficulties of postpartum life, and our staff frequently makes referrals to other local agencies and care providers. 

YOUR GIFT will train volunteers, so no family has to wait for visits.

The Village Closet

We recently lost our space at the Berkshire Trail Elementary School Building in Cummington, but the need for necessary baby supplies has not stopped. Staff and volunteers continue to store clothing and gear in barns and basements, making deliveries to families in need. 

We are close to being able to reopen, but we need your help.

YOUR GIFT will supply much-needed shelves, tables, and a dry store room for the winter.

Parent Groups

When parents have support from their peers and can learn the skills for self-care, families thrive! Parent groups and educational workshops from It Takes a Village bring families together, build confidence, and ensure that parents have the tools they need to succeed. 

YOUR GIFT will provide the childcare during the next workshop so a mom can get the support she needs.

Without your support, families will be isolated, vulnerable, and unable to sustain our communities into the future.

You can make sure they have the support they need.

You can Be the Village they deserve.
