Nothing makes us happier than hearing a parent or caregiver tell us: “The Nan Tolbert Nurturing Center offers us a safe place in a busy world to bond with our child.” “Because of the Nan Tolbert Center, I have a never had a better relationship with my daughter. I see it as a miracle!”
New parents and caregivers face ever present challenges to create healthy bonds with their children that will see them thrive as infants, curious learners, and engaged citizens whose decisions will impact our world. For this, the first 3 years are critical.
Over the past 10 years, you and others like you have supported nearly 5,000 Nan Tolbert Nurturing Center (NTNC) families. Families with newborns, infants, toddlers and young children have benefited from your generosity. We’ve grown from serving less than 50 families in our first year to serving over 700 this year alone. We can’t thank you enough. Now we need your help as we look to multiply our impact over the next 10 years.
Your support is crucial to our efforts to ensure we continue to we leave no young families in our community underserved. Through growing our Emotional Care outreach, we will reach our communities most vulnerable and hard to reach including teen parents and postpartum parents. Our Intern program trains psychotherapy interns so they can take away and develop our methodology in communities outside our physical reach. We are also in the process of creating our philosophy into a curriculum series including educational videos. With your support we will form more partnerships to amplify our efforts such as our recent collaborations with Girls Empowerment Workshop and Grow Midwivery.
If you’re able, we’d love if you could donate any amount to help us achieve our mission and make sure all families with children 0-3 years receive support, love and the education needed to develop healthy relationships which lead to a healthy community and world.
