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!

In their words...

Just want to thank you guys for my baby box, the box of baby clothes I got at Campaigners and the pack n play! Love how this group is so supportive of teen moms! Amazing how there are people that care about us! Excited for my first Club this Saturday. Campaigners has been great -love the children's bible I got with the baby box! Reminds me of the ones my mom used to buy my siblings and me to read but I was the only one that read them. Once again thank you for receiving me in this group with much love! - Jocelyne (Dec 2017)

Hey guys! I'm new here, I didn't have time to thank you guys before today for the baby box I got on Monday because I literally left to the hospital an hour after I got it I had my little boy, he was born on December 5th (: I hope to meet you guys soon and thank you for the baby box again and all the support. - Gabriela (Dec 2017)

Our goal is to build an inventory of boxes so we are ready to deliver as soon as we get word of a pregnant teen in our community.
