Cribs for Kids is a program at the Heath Department that offers safe sleep education and a safe place for baby to sleep. Individuals who participate in the program fill out a safe sleep survey and receive education via video and in person. After education is completed, the individual will be given a pack-n-play. Along with the pack-n-play, comes a safe sleep bundle which includes a sheet for the pack-n-play, a sleep sack, and a packet of local resources that may be helpful to the participant. GCHD staff then follow-up with each individual.
2023 Program Eligibility:
- Mother at least 32 weeks pregnant or baby under a year old.
- Gallia county resident.
- Income based.
Parents living in separate homes or parents with multiples may receive more than one pack-n-play
