PJP works with thousands of Community Partners – shelters, foster care agencies, Head Start, Title I Schools, and more – across every state including Puerto Rico.

With support from Carter’s and Scholastic Book Clubs, and focused efforts in New York City, Atlanta, and metro-Detroit, PJP provides children facing adversity and their caregivers with materials, information, and support to help make bedtime better.
