Earn While You Learn

A NEW PROGRAM GREW OUT OF THE MENTORING PROGRAM:
"EARN WHILE YOU LEARN"

Pregnancy and parenting are filled with lots of uncertainty. This program helps to answer many of the questions our clients have and ease their anxiety. Many people want to learn how to be good parents and raise a healthy, happy child. The center staff is available to provide support and resources during this time of transition and change. The lessons are fun, interesting and practical.

As a part of our Earn While You Learn Parenting Program, our clients are given an opportunity to earn credits that they can use to 'purchase' new materials like baby clothes, blankets, diapers, formula and other much needed supplies we have to share.

We may even have items like cribs, strollers and other baby furniture available through the program. At our center we provide our clients with an opportunity to learn how to be the best parent they can be. Earn While You Learn will help them to understand what to expect in pregnancy and beyond.

Through regular lessons that include videos and worksheets, they will learn important and interesting information about their pregnancy and their baby. There are a number of topics to choose from and our staff will put together a lesson plan that is unique to their needs. And best of all, they will work with a volunteer who will be able to help them better understand the challenges and joys that lie ahead for them and their baby.
