Since the launch of the Sonia’s Cradle Program, Ridge Meadows Ministries has supported over 3,000 babies and toddlers. Due to several factors, families registered in this program struggle to provide proper food, clothing, and basic necessities, such as diapers and formula for their growing families.

Sonia’s Cradle clients come from a variety of backgrounds, including:

  • Single mothers or fathers
  • Seniors with custody of their grandchildren
  • Working families trying to make ends meet
  • New immigrants
  • Parents and/or children with disabilities
