Boxes For Babies

At YoungLives, we love teen moms and their babies. We are dedicated to supporting and serving teen moms by walking alongside them and encouraging them to pursue their dreams. However, we know that first, they have practical needs that must be met. That’s why Young Lives is partnering with Boxes for Babies to provide each pregnant teen with a baby box.

Inspired by the Finnish Baby Boxes, each box serves as a bassinet for the first months of life and contains many mom and baby essentials. But, they are more than just boxes. It has been our hope from the start that these boxes are not only able to practically equip moms to welcome home their babies, but are able to provide them with love and support through the YoungLives community.

Over the past year, YoungLives and Boxes for Babies have provided more than ten expecting moms with baby boxes. Our goal is to bless many more expecting moms in the near future. This is where we need your help.

The complete cost of a box is $200. Included in every box are newborn essentials like diapers, clothes, and toiletries, to name a few. Also included are a few gifts for mom and a Jesus Storybook Bible to share the good news of Jesus’ love.

Every gift matters and every gift goes towards helping moms provide the best home for their baby. Please prayerfully consider partnering with us in this exciting new ministry!
