Premier Health and Atrium Medical Center Support Middletown Baby Pantry
Thursday, June 30, 2016 3:15:52 PM - Middletown Ohio

MIDDLETOWN, Ohio, June 30, 2016: A service providing diapers, bottles and other essentials to Middletown area parents has been re-named the Premier Health Atrium Medical Center Baby Pantry after the health system provided funding to buy supplies.

Community Building Institute Middletown Inc. operates the Parent Resource Center where the baby pantry is located at the Robert “Sonny” Hill Community Center in Middletown. The Parent Resource Center’s mission is to connect families to early education programs and empower adults to achieve the success they desire through educational programming.

“This service is so important because providing diapers and baby essentials to parents not only allows the Parent Resource Center to fill a need that is not met through traditional assistance, but also affords us the opportunity to educate parents to the importance of enrolling their children in early education programs,” said Karin Maney, executive director of Community Building Institute Middletown.  

A ribbon cutting and naming ceremony to celebrate the new sponsorship was held June 29 at the center on Lafayette Avenue in Middletown. Funding from Premier Health and Atrium will help replenish pantry supplies so the center can continue to expand its outreach and marketing about early childhood education to local families.

The mission of Atrium’s nonprofit parent system Premier Health is to build healthier communities and supporting the baby pantry is a great way to give back, said Carol Turner, president and chief executive officer of the Middletown hospital, the city’s second largest employer.

“The last thing we want is a family welcoming a new baby into their home to have to worry about the essentials like diapers and baby wipes," Turner said. "It is crucial to make this service available in the center of Middletown."

The Parent Resource Center including the baby pantry opened in 2010 in response to a community call for more support for under-resourced parents raising small children. Today, the center is open five days a week from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Any resident in the Middletown area and individuals referred by the Parent Resource Center’s Butler County partners can access the pantry. In addition to the baby pantry, the center offers weekly play groups, on-site connection to Butler County Educational Services Center preschool enrollment, Butler Tech GED and ESOL classes, financial literacy and parenting classes, and more self-sufficiency opportunities.

“We were looking at how we could take our collaborations and partnerships a little farther,” said Anita Scott Jones, hospital relations manager for Atrium. “Now this is a visible for the community to see our commitment to the city.”

The Parent Resource Center sees about 200 families annually and last year distributed more than 11,000 diapers along with other baby essentials. Earlier in 2016, the Parent Resource Center was also named an agency partner of United Way of Greater Cincinnati.
