Connections Spotlight — Giving thanks to our wonderful supporters, community partners, members

In this season of giving, CCC&Y wishes to celebrate Heather and Art Babbott and their family for their extraordinary contribution toward the CCC&Y Mission.

The Coalition relies on the generous help of our supporters, community partners and members to eliminate childhood trauma and inequity by building an inclusive movement of people dedicated to transforming and healing our communities. Through leadership, education and advocacy, we are reconnecting children and families to the greater community and their own potential.

Our Mission:

Southwest Human Development — Fussy Baby Helpline

Having a new baby can be an incredible experience; a new little person to love, care and support. Every day is full with new experiences and things to discover. But it can also be challenging, difficult, tiring and anxiety-provoking.

Dr. T. Berry Brazelton, a widely-known pediatrician and author, talks about two universal worries parents have:

Is my baby all right?
And, am I an OK parent?

This past year-and-a-half, since the beginning of the pandemic and all the changes and stressors and difficulties it brought to all families and communities, many parents have been asking themselves these questions with some accompanying worries and challenges.

When parents call the Birth to Five Helpline, we always ask them how they are doing and feeling.

All families and caregivers can get support when they have any questions or concerns about their young children from birth to age 5.
