Often, we are approached by agencies and clients to assist with the inspection and installation of car seats that are outdated and / or in poor shape, and as such are no longer viable for use. Sadly, many clients simply do not have the financial means to replace these hazerdous seats.
The "Gift of Safety" program is a project that is aimed at assisting low income families with gaining access to essential infant and child restraint systems. Our goal is to provide families with the necessary safety education, materials and resources to enable them to safely transport their children.
The families receive referrals from community health practitioners and other agencies such as the Medicine Hat Pregnancy Support Center, the Phoenix Safe House, and BRIDGES. Upon receipt of the referral, we do our best to provide the family with the child seats.
