Babies Of Homelessness is hosting our first Back-To-School & MORE event August 19th.

With over 8,000 homeless children in King and Snohomish counties, there are far too many kiddos who will not be able to start their school year off properly prepared. Please join us in helping these students feel confident and ready to learn by setting them up to succeed!

We will be inviting families experiencing homelessness, to attend this event. They will have the opportunity to fill their child(ren)s school supply list, get back-to-school haircuts, hearing and speech assessments, free teeth cleaning vouchers, and much more! In addition to offering these items for the kiddos, we will have resource/agency partners on-hand for the parents to obtain information on housing, medical, family services, and more.

We need your help to ensure this is a success! Please consider sharing this donation drive in your workplace, in your community or sharing it on your social media sites. Our Supply List is below, and also on

If you can help, please drop off your donations by August 15 at one of these two drop-off locations or order directly off our Amazon wish list.

    Are donations to this school supply drive tax deductible? Is Babies of Homelessness a registered charity? I am asking because I know someone who wants to ask his work to match donations.
