The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Baby Steps Program Evaluation.

Cici, Kristen.

The mission of Baby Steps, founded in 2001, is to improve the health and well being of families, pregnant women and young children by motivating individuals to use services that benefit their families. To fulfill its mission, Baby Steps aims to: Educate parents and caregivers about services that strengthen families in the communities that are served by the coupon partners .Motivate parents, caregivers, and grandparents to actively participate and utilize partner services to strengthen families .Increase and/or maintain the number of partners who provide services to families with children. Develop Baby Steps Closets in outlying locations. To fulfill these goals, Baby Steps collaborates with social, medical, dental and educational services (approximately 200 individual service providers) that serve and strengthen families. This provides a strong base of support from the community. The network that has developed out of these professional partnerships provides a strong support for families and ensures that Baby Steps is a centralized clearinghouse that provides a wealth of information to parents and caregivers about partners' programs in the area.
