Baby K’tan, LLC Hosts Tour for 20 BOOST & G.A.P. Participants
Baby K’tan had the honor of hosting over 20 BOOST & G.A.P. participants at their offices and warehouse in Davie, FL. The young adults with developmental disabilities had a tour and presentations from each department. The questions presented during open Q&A were extremely thoughtful and exhibited the interest in Baby K’tan and how a business runs.
BOOST, through Joshua’s Path at Goodman JFS of Broward County, gives companies like Baby K’tan the opportunity to support young adults with developmental disabilities. This is also something that is near and dear to Baby K’tan’s heart as one of the founders has a child with special needs. In the 3 years they have partnered with BOOST, Baby K’tan has provided on-site work experiences that help these incredible young adults acquire valuable social skills and opportunities, foster relationships, and set them on the path toward independence and employment. Baby K’tan takes great pride on the BOOST graduates that currently work with them, as it is an absolute privilege to partner with an organization that cares so deeply and does so much good.

For all of the families, and Baby K’tan’s own, who are raising kids with the added challenge of mobility or developmental differences – you are seen, you are supported, and Baby K’tan is committed to caring for you and your children through the babywearing years and beyond. Parenting is a forever kind of job, and Baby K’tan is in it with you all the way.
