Bright by Text is a free text messaging service for anyone who cares for or loves a child - prenatal to age eight. This national program, powered locally by Women United, delivers expert tips, activities, events, and resources directly to the subscriber’s phone in their choice of English or Spanish.
Messages use the child’s age and zip code to offer relevant information. Subscribers receive 2-4 messages per week, balancing notifications on events such as free summer lunch programs, preschool enrollment, and learning activities with links to research-based content on a child’s development. As a child grows, the messages change to reflect their biggest developmental milestones. This resource builds resilience and confidence for those nurturing a young child.
