This project will save us $5,048 , allowing us to sponsor 25 families with scholarships to join our Piko Pals new parent support groups.

What We Need

  • A photographer who will work with the Organization over 1-2 days to capture an important event or shoot a series of photographs to tell the Organization's story
  • A set of professionally edited, high-resolution images delivered in JPEG or TIFF format suitable for web or print use
  • Note: The photographer needs to be available in the same geographical location as the Organization or be willing to travel at own expense

Additional Details

Ideally, we would like to capture the participants engaging in our Piko Pals (12-week new parent support program) and/or our Cribs for Kids program (safe sleep education for low-income, high-risk families), as well as our MothersCare maternal counseling services.

It is easy for us to schedule the location and the attendees to be photographed, and we would love to build our library to showcase the types of services we offer, so that we can attract more families to participate.

How This Will Help

The success of our organization depends on being able to effectively convey our mission. Photos do it! Without your help, we cannot reach the families we most want to serve with our programs. Your skills will empower us to show how our programs are welcoming and fun for new parents.

What We Have In Place

We currently have program participants and signed release forms, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a helpful staff, and the ability to provide any other information you need.

Fun Fact

Our office has a family room with couches, crafts and a library of parent resources. We love babies in our office--it's a happy feeling! This Halloween, we will be having a costume party with all the babies in our Piko Pals program. The cuteness will almost be too much!
