About Room to Grow

Room to Grow is an expanding non-profit organization supporting early childhood development, a field with emerging prominence in academia, politics, and the press. Room to Grow envisions that one day, all parents will have the resources they need to unlock their families’ potential and become champions for babies and their community. With locations in NYC and Boston, our research-informed program focuses on eradicating the associated developmental and achievement gaps that hinder children throughout their lives, ultimately breaking the cycle of intergenerational poverty. Room to Grow receives referrals from a network of prenatal programs assisting low-income families, as well as from members of the community we serve. Upon their referral, families visit Room to Grow’s warm and inviting space one every three months starting in the third trimester of pregnancy through their child’s third birthday. During one-on-one appointments with expert clinicians, we offer structured coaching, material goods ($10,000 retail value over time), and community connections to support parents as they activate their natural strengths and expand their knowledge so children thrive from the start.
