Fran Wasserman started The Baby Bureau in her home in 2011. She recognized an unmet need in the community for underserved and at-risk babies. What started as a small stack of donated clothing soon turned into many stacks of clothing. Through Fran’s determination, she was able to secure a larger space at the Warminster Campus of Abington Hospital in late 2012. The new location allows for a larger volunteer space that continues to grow.
We started with a partnership of one health department and one local hospital in 2012 and that has grown to a network of over 40 health and human services providers who proudly distributed our Baby Bundles to families in need. Our diverse volunteer staff includes workforce development for local high school students with special needs, participants in the National Honor Society, and community members. We also have adults with special needs who volunteer at The Baby Bureau on a weekly basis.
