Cribs For Kids Program Moves Into Putnam County

1/31/18 – 5:33 A.M.

A program that helps families in need get cribs has expanded into Putnam County. The Courier reports the Help Me Grow Office in Ottawa is now a site for the Cribs for Kids program. Previously, qualified families had to make a trip to Lima to pick up a free crib.

Barb Duling is the home visitor/service coordinator for Putnam County Help Me Grow. She tells the newspaper, “some of our families did not have the transportation to do so, so we’re kind of taking away that roadblock.”

The Ohio Department of Health and the Maternal and Child Health Bureau runs the Cribs for Kids program.
