Cribs for Kids®

Cribs for Kids®is a program to assure the availability of cribs to low-income families in Lincoln County. Requests for a crib must be made through a referring agency. Once the referral is received, parents are contacted and scheduled for an educational session at the Health Department.

During that time, staff will explain safe infant sleep practices and review set up and take down Baby Cribof the crib. Parents receive a voucher which can then be redeemed after their baby is born.

There is a $15.00 donation for the Graco Pack ‘n Play, which is strongly encouraged to maintain the program. Anyone interested in making a monetary donation to purchase cribs for this program, can contact the Health Department.

Lincoln County Death Review Team

Lincoln County Child Death Reveiw Team is one of the teams in Wisconsin who help to better understand how and why a child has died. There are statistics on how many children die and from what causes, but often know little about the circumstances leading up to the child’s death. The Lincoln County Child Death Review team reviews and acknowledges all intentional and unintentional child deaths from a prevention standpoint. For more information, visit Children’s Health Alliance of Wisconsin.
