Dear Partners and Friends,
As families and friends begin to gather for the holidays, the Boston Basics is recognizing the important roles we all play to support the families of the youngest children in our city. We invite you to join us in a campaign this season
—It Takes a Community
. We are highlighting the critical learning period during the first three years of life and how our collective work makes a difference. We want to start by thanking the Boston Basics community and our partners.
Together, we have made great strides this year. Trusted messengers in every sector of society—whose work deeply influences parents, caregivers, infants, and toddlers—are sharing The Basics citywide. Over 100 sites are now incorporating The Basics into their daily work
, including major hospitals, community health centers, libraries, early childhood programs, community centers, barbers, and faith-based organizations.
We hope you will participate by customizing the campaign message to highlight your organization’s work and help us spread the word. Or, invite your neighbor or church group to watch a Basics video. See other ways to join in below.
