Room to Grow
  Summer 2014

It is a very exciting time at Room to Grow. Just a few months ago, many of you joined us to bid farewell to former CEO, Saskia Epstein, and thank her for her leadership and vision.


Our focus now is on expanding our reach in our existing regions of Boston and New York. Thanks to your generosity, in September the Boston site will pilot a community-based parenting workshop program.

Thank you so much for your ongoing support in giving every baby the great start in life that they deserve. I hope to see you at our upcoming gala.
