How YOU Can Be The Village

Don’t forget: it takes the ENTIRE Village to support new families, which is why we need you. There are so many ways you can help:


Because of you, new parents will get the support they need to stay connected to their community, find the resources they need, and keep themselves and their babies healthy.

Or you can send a check, made payable to It Takes a Village, to:

You can make your gift go even farther. Parents rely on their Village every day; can they rely on you every month? Join our Safety-Net Circle of monthly donors, and families will know they can count on you every single month.

Simply click the button blow, click Donate, and check the “Donate Monthly” box.

You can volunteer at The Village Closet or as Home Visit Volunteer. Go to our Volunteers page to learn more and to fill out an application.



We gladly take gently-used maternity, baby, and children’s clothing and gear at the Village Closet. Go to our Village Closet page for a list of frequently-donated items. We also take donations of coffee, tea, and snacks for our Parent Groups. Feeling ambitious? Collect diapers in your community and bring them to the Village Closet. Or buy some on Amazon and have them shipped directly to us (PO Box 146, Cummington, MA).


Thank you being The Village for families in our community!
