My name is Kayla and I am an Account Manager at Socialistics.
I’m fairly new to the Socialistics team, and when I was introduced to Socialistic Cares, I knew I was exactly where I was supposed to be. A full-fledged marketing company that not only supports its employees, serves as a safe space for creativity & individuality but also supports causes that mean something to each of us – and so many people around the world.
The cause I am most passionate about is Room to Grow, an organization that supports families during the most critical part of a child’s life. Room to Grow is a place of future hope. They not only provide immediately needed resources (clothing, bottles, toys…) but the ultimate goal is to set the parents up with resources. These resources lead to connections, and a future for them and their families. From interview techniques to baby clothes, work attire to books – Room to Grow doesn’t stop at donations. Room to Grow’s program combines three proven forms of family support: personalized parent coaching, free baby items, and connections to community resources.
This isn’t simply a handout, it’s a way to guarantee a better life for baby + family.
My mom is the reason I strive to bring awareness to community programs such as Room to Grow. As a teen mom, she wasn’t given the resources or community network that allowed her to create the life she wanted for both herself and me. With a program like Room to Grow, she would have been given the tools to educate herself both in the world of parenting & her desired career. If it wasn’t for family, I do not know where we would be today. Unfortunately, most families in our situation, those living in poverty, or those without a community – end up falling into various statistics.
Children deserve opportunities. Mothers & Fathers deserve resources. By supporting programs such as Room to Grow, we together can make that happen.
Personally, I have had my hand in the Boston location for years. From donations to volunteer work, I have had the privilege of serving my community alongside my mother, truly showing the value of networking and what the “full-circle” can do for a family.
