As Told to Good360 by Citadel Community Development Corporation  

Citadel Community Development Corporation, located in San Bernardino, CA, is made up of a great team of directors, case managers and specialists who help in building a relationship with clients and truly dedicate themselves to providing the best services possible. Through fully focusing on each individual requesting assistance, the team at Citadel icentered around individuals that all play vital parts in fulfilling the needs of the clients.  We strive to enhance the well-being and stability of individuals and families by providing supportive services to at-risk or disadvantaged populations.   

Thanks to this donation from Buy Buy Baby, recipients have been able to provide for their newborns by receiving muchneeded and wanted items for their children. We provided items to help take care of children whether it is a single mom, a struggling family, or parents with multiple children. Being able to give these mothers and fathers necessities such as blankets, bottles, strollers, bassinets and clothing to name a few, brings us so much joy because the recipients are really grateful. Our community comes to our agency and requests the necessary items for their newborns and children, which help them feel empowered. Along with a sense of satisfaction and pride in providing for their children, these parents know that they are not alone. 

One of our clients, Sabrina, is a 21-year-old mother of two who was unable to work during her pregnancy because she was diagnosed as high risk. Sabrina and her husband were struggling with having only one income at this time. It was difficult for them to prepare for a baby without the finances they used to have while both of them were employed. The donated Items had a huge impact in her life because they provided a sense of immense relief and she did not have to stress about baby necessities at the same time she was having to deal with her medical issues. Thank you Good360 and Buy Buy Baby.  Because of you families can provide for their children.
