Baby Haven is an incentive-based program for low income families who are either expecting a child or have a child under 24 months old. Baby Haven is not about giving handouts; rather, it is about changing lives by helping parents set goals that promote healthy families. For achieving these goals, families are rewarded with resources for their infants like formula, diapers, clothing and more. Upon completion to the two year program students will participate in graduation celebration ceremony and receive a certificate of completion. Classes are held the second and fourth week of the month in English and Spanish.
Facilitators in our community volunteer their time and expertise to teach the mothers enrolled in the program. Health, Education and Financial Stability are the three staples of Baby Haven. Subjects may include, parenting skills, nutrition, budgeting, child safety, health care, immunizations, or many other life skills.
The boutique is filled with baby items such as, formula, furniture, baby food, wipes, blanket clothes and more. Mothers select items with the points they earn attending classes and keeping their babies medical care up to date. Diapers are given just for attending classes. Baby Haven also provides an opportunity to have fellowship and support from other mothers facing the same or similar challenges.
Mothers in the Baby Haven program are welcome to bring their families for Coffee Talk once a month for food, fun and fellowship. Building stronger relationships with one another outside the classroom creates a strong connection and more meaningful experience.
