On Friday, we thanked our Cradle Care Parents with our annual holiday luncheon! We are so grateful for our amazing Cradle Care Parents and all that they do to give babies a loving start.  When a baby is in their home, they care for the child, and advocate for them, as if he, or she, were their own.

The loving and personalized care given to children by Barker’s trained Cradle Care families ensures that each child’s journey to permanency begins in a safe and loving home. THANK YOU for your love, flexibility, and commitment to Barker’s mission. To read more about Cradle Care, check out these links from our website:
