About Baby’s Bounty:
Baby’s Bounty™ is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides essential clothing and gear to babies born into disadvantaged families for their health, safety and wellbeing. Recipients include babies born to victims of domestic abuse, teen mothers and those living in poverty.
Founder, Kim Amato, started Baby’s Bounty™ in Las Vegas in July of 2008 to address the rise in homelessness among families with young children. After learning about the increase in homeless families, Kim began investigating how often newborn children were being released from the hospital without the proper clothing and supplies for their health, safety and wellbeing. Hospital and Clark County caseworkers confirmed that many families were leaving the hospital without any supplies whatsoever for their newborn children. The infants had no safe place to sleep and no clothing or diapers.
