Infant Care Supply Center
At the Infant Care Supply Center (ICSC), mothers struggling in poverty can find resources they need
Early in 2009, BHI staff recognized the need to provide young mothers on our waiting list, and those ineligible for our residential care program, with supplies these moms needed to adequately prepare for and care for their new babies.
We piloted the BHI Infant Care Supply Center (ICSC) in 2010, and have grown this grassroots program into a fully-funded, data-gathering endeavor. Because of all the kind donations to the ICSC from our supporters, BHI has provides more than 150 families with diapers, car seats, clothing, and other infant care supplies each month, free of cost.
The ICSC is located in St. Charles Borromeo Church in the building NEXT to the church at the end of the school building. Our office hours are Tuesdays from 10 AM - 12 Noon for donation drop-offs or pick-up.
St. Charles Borromeo Church 3304 Washington Blvd. Arlington, Va.
