Keys to Kids' Safety


The Keys to Kids' Safety Program provides community outreach initiatives and child safety resources such as educational materials and training. This program addresses vehicle and bike safety, safe sleep practices, home environment and poison safety. 

This program helps parents and caregivers to provide a safe environment to raise their children through the provision of education, support, and safety supplies. We address vehicle and bike safety, safe sleep practices, water and pool safety, home environment and poison safety, and nutrition assistance. 

We also conduct children's car seat inspection and installation events and provide new car seats for a small donation, provide education to all community members and, in some cases, cribs, and other necessary safety equipment to parents, caregivers, and agency personnel to ensure the safety of Monroe County children.

Why Keys to Kids' Safety Matters:

Car Seat Safety

In 2023 we trained 8 new Child Passenger Safety Technicians (CPSTs) that help serve our community by educating families on proper car seat installation & use. We provided 180 new, low-cost, or no-cost car seats to families in the community to help keep their children safe. Additionally, we provided 98 stroller car seat combos for those who do not own a car and/or use public transportation. The CPSTs also assisted countless other families in assuring their own car seats were installed correctly.  It is estimated that 4 out of 5 car seats are installed incorrectly, making our work in the community have a significant impact on the families we serve. 


Safe Sleep

We have continued to provide a safe sleeping environment for babies that are in need. in 2023 alone, we distributed over 70 Pack N' Plays to encourage safe sleep. We have also provided toddler beds and accessories such as sheets and mattress pads when needed. 


Bike Safety

With the assistance of helmets from PedBike, this invaluable resource continues to be offered to members of the community. Whether riding a bike, skateboard, scooter, or anything else with wheels, we encourage the use of helmets to protect the head in case of an accident.
