The Helping Hands Program is an ‘earn as you learn’ opportunity where first-time moms and dads receive educational, emotional and group support while learning how to successfully parent their new baby. As they learn, clients earn “Baby Bucks” to spend in our Baby Boutique. In addition, if they complete the entire 12 week program they are eligible to receive a brand new CAR SEAT or PACK ’n PLAY purchased for them by Women’s Pregnancy Center.
This program was developed to create opportunities for ongoing mentoring with the young women and men who come to our Center. The program covers a variety of subjects designed to help our clients develop parenting skills while growing both emotionally and spiritually. Clients are free to share concerns and ask questions in a nonjudgmental atmosphere. We are dedicated to offering a comfortable and loving group environment where the love of Christ is exemplified in both Word and deed.
Education is provided by Women’s Pregnancy Center volunteers in conjunction with guest speakers from the community and area churches. We are always expanding our program and looking for volunteers and speakers who have expertise in areas that could benefit our clients.
