Reviews for Room To Grow National, Inc.
This is a wonderful organization that I have been lucky enough to volunteer with for the last year. Their New York office is incredibly friendly, well organized and peaceful. The Room to Grow clients are treated respectfully and equally and the high level of donations has them leaving with supplies for their baby that they can take pride in. The private sessions with RTG's amazing social workers offers crucial support for parent and baby too. This is an inspiring nonprofit to be involved with!!!
Room to Grow is an amazing nonprofit. It helps underserved families by giving them both parenting support and all the necessities--clothing, books, developmental toys, feeding supplies--for their babies. Room to Grow is making a world of difference in the lives of their clients. Volunteering at this organization is a joy because the staff are so passionate about the mission.
I learned about Room to Grow in 2004, and soon started volunteering at this exceptional nonprofit. This nonprofit really spoke to me, because I was a new mom and facing the typical challenges of learning to parent. Room to Grow opened my eyes to the needs faced by families who have young children, but don't always have all the resources they need to give their children the best start in life. Room to Grow has a wonderful program--the organization gives families baby gear, clothing, and books needed for raising an infant/toddler AND provides one-on-one parenting support. I'm proud to continue to help Room to Grow, as it makes a profound impact on families who need support during the critical first three years of their children's lives.

Room To Grow is a well run organization serving a fantastic cause providing young children in poverty with a variety of necessities. I highly support the organization and I'm happy I was able to assist with the cause!
Room to Grow is an absolutely amazing organization. The entire team is extremely passionate about assisting babies born into poverty by providing their families with the support needed to ensure healthy development and progress during their first three years. Second Chance Toys has worked closely with Room to Grow through our toy donation opportunities and events and we have seen firsthand the passion behind the mission.
I feel in love with this organization as soon as I heard about it. It has a real impact and measurable results which you often don't find.
I came to know Room to Grow through my employer. We have worked with Room to Grow for years and have seen firsthand the extraordinary work the organization does. The organization makes the most out of each dollar donated and the staff is incredibly skilled and committed.
I've been volunteering at Room to Grow for 7 years and it is a wonderful organization. The space itself is colorful and clean, making it very welcoming to the clients who arrive with their children. I've mainly worked with Naomi, who does a great job welcoming the volunteers, explaining the activity we'll be helping with, and answering questions from the volunteers throughout the project. The other staff members I've met have also been extremely friendly, welcoming, and appreciative of the volunteers. By the end of the project, the volunteers feel as though they've truly made a difference and so many return to volunteer each month. I'm looking forward to volunteering with Room to Grow for many years to come!
I first came across Room to Grow when I was looking for a children’s charity to donate baby items to. I was delighted to find out that the company that I work for has an ongoing Corporate volunteering relationship with the organization. After doing some research and taking part in my first monthly volunteer session, I realized that this was a charity that I wanted to become more involved in. I was very impressed with the work the organization does. What sets Room to Grow apart from the vast majority of children’s charities is the fact that it’s so much more than just giving away “stuff”. Room to Grow and its staff cares deeply about the families that participates in its programs. The social workers at Room to Grow develop strong relationships with the families that are built on trust and mutual respect. The families receive customized educational and social support for the first three years of their child’s life, paving the way for a brighter forward looking future.
Room to Grow’s impact extends far beyond the immediate families that it works with, it is an integral part of the community and I am so happy and proud to be affiliated with such an organization.
Room to grow has made such an impact in my life. It has helped me to care for my child in more ways than one. From the clothes and toys he receives every visit to the mentoring and educating on his development. I feel so fortunate to be a part of such a wonderful program.
Room to Grow is a very special organization with an extremely noble cause that is changing the lives of babies and young families faced with very challenging circumstances every single day.
With a dedicated focus on providing educational and social support as well as essential gear and supplies to babies living in poverty through their first three years of development, along with their outstanding staff and leadership, Room to Grow gives babies and families in great need a fighting chance to thrive.
The families who participate in this program face intense struggles every single day yet remain extremely optimistic and strong through it all thanks to the wonderful support of Room to Grow...all reasons why I am extremely proud and fortunate to be affiliated with Room to Grow.
