Who Uses Good Beginnings?

Good Beginnings of the Upper Valley's services are free of charge to all families.  Good Beginnings' aim is to ensure that every baby enjoys a "good beginning."  Our services are available to every family in our community with a new baby. People who use Good Beginnings include: 

  • Any family with a newborn

  • First-time and experienced parents

  • Mothers or expectant mothers on bed-rest

  • Families with multiple births

  • Foster families

  • Adoptive families

  • Families off-balance from sleepless nights

  • Families of all income levels

At the end of your volunteer's service with your family, Good Beginnings will only ask that you complete a brief program evaluation. Your willingness to help us evaluate our program will ensure that we continue to serve families in the most meaningful way.
