Parenting is a big deal. Welcome Baby is here to help!

About Welcome Baby

Welcome Baby is a program of United Way of Skagit County. United Way has done extensive research and recognizes how critical the first 1,000 days of a child’s life is for their overall development and well-being. Welcome Baby’s goal is to support, educate, and connect families to resources so that all Skagit Children have a solid foundation for life.

Welcome Baby wants parents to feel connected to the activities, resources, and events that are available in the community. In addition, the coordinators will advocate for parents and cheer them on. Welcome Baby is here for you! Think of Welcome Baby as your friendly guide along the parenting journey.
