Have you heard about our BABY BOUTIQUE?
In a corner of our building we have a special store where parents can shop with their “Baby Bucks” earned from our True Value Parenting program. Bucks are awarded for participating in these classes, attending church, doctor appointments, social worker visits and connecting with community resources such as MOMS, Early Childhood Education and WIC to name a few.
The boutique is a fabulous incentive for parents to earn while they learn. Each product has a price associated with it. Some items are larger and require saving. We like to have a variety of items on hand from practical to fun! Although, in all honesty it is the practical items that are purchased the most! For some parents, our boutique is a critical source of help for items like diapers and wipes. The boutique is primarily made up of new or homemade items gifted from generous donors like you.

Your donations also go into our BABY BUNDLES
When a pregnancy test is positive, it’s important to us that we can build a relationship and stay in contact with the mother through her journey, especially if she’s feeling uncertain. We provide her many resources, including a devotional and material on what to expect during her pregnancy. We also give her a coupon for a Baby Bundle to be redeemed after her baby is born.
Baby Bundles are baskets made up of important items for a newborn baby’s care. It includes things like diapers, wipes, sleepers, outfits, burp cloths, hygienic products, a toy and more. A Bible is included for the parents along with devotions and parenting tips. We wrap these in our homemade quilts and nestle them in a laundry basket ready to present.
