About the Program

What We Do

BabyGoRound provides essential baby items including gear, diapers and clothing to families in need throughout the Lower Mainland. We work with a network of approximately 80 health and social service agencies, including the YWCA, domestic violence shelters, hospitals, youth and teen pregnancy programs and programs supporting families new to Canada to identify these families in need. These families then come to our store-like facility where they are able to shop for the items they need and take them home free of charge. Most often these include several costly items like a crib, stroller, front carrier, high chair, and exersaucer as well as smaller things such as clothing, blankets, toys, and bath items. We are always looking for more gently used gear to distribute, please contact us if you have some you’d like to donate!

The clients we bring are very impressed and feel VALIDATED as parents. Many live with barriers and feel LESS THAN in almost all circumstances so are pleased when they are treated as valuable parents at BabyGoRound!

BabyGoRound is a highly valued community resource by parents. It alleviates a major stressor for income limited parents and families by helping them to prepare essential baby items for safe parenting.
