New Video Encourages Mothers to Seek Out Reliable Caregivers

Family Resources and The Allegheny County Department of Health and Human Services enlisted The Fred Rogers Company to create a video that encouraged young mothers to find mature and reliable caregivers rather than leaving their baby with unreliable boyfriends. Animation students at The Art Institute of Pittsburgh and actors from The Pittsburgh High School for Creative and Performing Arts generously gave their time and talents to create this important message. The video premiered before more than 700 donors at the 18th Annual Child Abuse Prevention Month Awards Benefit and was enthusiastically received.

Part of the project included writing a song that would gently remind young mothers of the unique relationship they share with their baby. "You're The First One" was written on the same piano that Fred Rogers and Johnny Costa used for "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood" and is sung by CAPA student Saige Smith with David Pressau on piano.
