Partners & Resources
JPMA wishes to acknowledge our many resources and partners on their dedication to safe sleep.
Association & Medical Partners:
Inwood House ~ "Inwood House has a long, distinguished history in New York City of supporting young mothers and their babies, and helping them develop the knowledge and skills they need to create stable and nurturing homes. We are so grateful for this partnership with JPMA and their members for their dedication to baby safety and their commitment to quality products which ensure a safe home environment for young families. With this generous donation of cribs, sleepsacks and onesies, every pregnant and parenting teen we serve in the course of a year will benefit from having the essentials they need to give their babies a healthy and sound start in life." Linda Lausell Bryant, Inwood House Executive Director
K.I.D.S. ~ "Kids in Distressed Situations, Inc. (K.I.D.S.) supports the JPMA's efforts to ensure safe sleep of infants around the country. Our children are our future and the possession of a crib by families who otherwise would have to do without contributes to the prevention of poor sleeping habits particularly among the needy who cannot afford the purchase of cribs. We are privileged to partner with JPMA in mounting and executing this campaign." Janice Weinman, President of Kids In Distressed Situations, Inc.
Maternity Care Coalition, 609-923-5415 ~ "Aside from SIDS, more babies die in the US each year in unsafe sleep environments than from abuse or neglect. These tragic deaths are completely preventable. A baby should always sleep alone, on his or her back, in an uncluttered crib. Our Cribs for Kids program educates parents and caretakers on putting babies to sleep safely and we are proud to work with Kids in Distressed Situations and the JPMA to provide safe sleep essentials to families in the Philadelphia area." Cathy Melfi, Communications Director of Maternity Care Coalition
World Vision, 1-888-56 CHILD
Association & Medical Resources:
First Candle ~ "Deaths due to unsafe sleep practices are preventable. It is our goal to ensure that every parent is aware of and prepared to adopt lifesaving save sleep practices and that every baby has a safe place to sleep, especially if the family cannot afford one. In doing so, we could quite literally save thousands of infant lives for generations to come. We applaud JPMA for this important effort on behalf of babies and families." Dr. Marian Sokol, President of First Candle
The Hayes Foundation ~ "The Hayes Foundation is thrilled to partner with JPMA to distribute our This Side Up onesies. SIDS is a sensitive subject that most most parents are afraid of discussing, and it is our goal to educate anyone who is caring for a baby about safe-sleeping environments in the hopes of reducing the risk of SIDS nationwide." Kyra Oliver, founder of the Hayes Foundation
