Kim Amato, started Baby’s Bounty, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, in July of 2008. Prior to starting the organization, she was Executive Director of the Nevada Homeless Alliance (NHA), participating in the planning of three consecutive Project Homeless Connect events as part of the Executive Planning Committee. During her tenure he recognized a gap in services for infants born into impoverished households. Newborn babies were often released from the hospital without essential clothing and supplies or a safe sleep environment. She left her position with the NHA and soon after started Baby’s Bounty as a one-person, volunteer operation working from home, collecting gently used clothing and other essential baby items from a circle of family and friends. That circle grew as word spread and she began to recruit volunteers to help.
To date, Baby’s Bounty has provided essential items to more than 1,000 babies. Over 50 diaper bags are distributed per month and dozens of car seats, portable cribs and bathtubs. The principal goal of Baby’s Bounty is to ensure that every newborn in need has the most essential items to thrive.
