Last August 1st the law changed concerning the use of booster seats for children. For those facing problems with getting these need protections I recommend a great article on the places to go, to get help.
Purchasing car seats is a considerable expense for many families, but as car accidents are a leading cause of deaths and serious injuries among young children, health care organizations in the Twin Cities have programs to give low-income families free, or reduced cost car seats and booster seats.
Depending on availability, some pregnancy care centers, such as Total Life Care Center with centers across Minnesota and Wisconsin, help new and expectant mothers with car seats and other baby supplies and equipment.
Most of these programs focus on the more expensive car seats for infants and toddlers. The only one providing booster seats is the Metropolitan Health Plan’s car seat program who provide car seats and booster seats for children up to age eight. Their car seat coordinator can be reached at 1-800-500-8635.
This is great information. We applaud the organizations that are helping out.
