To support the health and well-being of families throughout Greater Boston, the Brigham’s Stronger Generations Initiative hosted a free “yard sale,” where, in partnership with community organizations, staff and volunteers distributed hundreds of items and resources to pregnant individuals and families with young children.
A program of the Center for Community Health and Health Equity, the Stronger Generations Initiative supports pregnant and postpartum individuals who deliver at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, as well as Greater Boston’s expectant and parenting families under the age of 25.
The event, hosted May 6 at BCYF Curtis Hall in Jamaica Plain, invited attendees to receive kids clothing, books, toys, snacks, school supplies, diapers, wipes, personal care items and more. The team also offered blood pressure screenings via the MGB Community Care Van and assisted interested families with accessing resources such as developmental screening.
Here are a few additional highlights from the event:
