Babies in Baytown (BIB) is an early childhood collaborative made up of community organizations and families of Baytown who are working to develop community solutions that better support the mental health of very young children and their families.
BIB in partnership with the Houston Infant and Toddler Coalition (HITC) is launching a parent-led leadership group for Baytown families with very young children who are interested in creating change in their life and in their community.

WHAT WE DO:
BIB leads conversations that help community members make decisions and plans for investing in innovative ways to better help families with young children grow healthy minds and build healthy relationships with others in their community.
WHY WE DO IT:
During the first three years of life, the brain establishes the foundation for child well-being and success in school. Research on early childhood shows that providing safe, responsive, and nurturing environments are critical to supporting children’s long-term mental health. Therefore, supporting the social and emotional health of infants and toddlers helps our next generation be healthy, successful members of society.
HOW WE DO IT:
BIB hosts monthly meetings as well as special family events to learn about what matters most to families with young children growing up in Baytown. We then make decisions together with parents and caregivers about how we can make Baytown a healthier place to live and learn for infants and toddlers.
WHO WE DO IT WITH:
BIB is made up of community, family, and organizational leaders who are interested in celebrating Baytown and working together to make change that improves the mental health of young children and their families.
