Providing Fundamental Services for Low-Income Mothers and Newborns
Swedish SafeRide provides car seats for families whose infants are born or receive care at Swedish. The SafeRide program was created to help families with limited incomes buy car seats. The program has grown to include education, training on proper car seat use and installation not only for patients, but for all community members.
In addition, Swedish also partners with community programs such as St. Joseph's Baby Corner and Women, Infants and Children's (WIC) Supplemental Feeding and Nutrition. With these programs, Swedish is able to provide fundamental needs like shelter, food and clothing to mothers and their young ones.
