Client Advocate Support – Confidential, one-on-one support from a caring, trained Client Advocate. Their purpose is to be an “advocate” for you!
Referral to Community Services – Such as financial assistance, employment, housing, medical assistance, educational opportunities, adoption services, ongoing professional counseling, legal aid, and more.
Parenting Classes – Through our Helping Hands parenting classes, expecting moms and dads are able to learn valuable information about pregnancy and pregnancy care as well as skills and education on how to care for the baby once he/she is born. As you work through the program, you will earn “Baby Bucks” that you can then redeem on some of the practical things you will need such as baby clothing, diapers, and many other items. You can even earn a brand new car seat for your little one. (Helping Hands parenting classes do not take the place of pre-natal medical care.)
Adoption Support Group – Meets bi-weekly throughout the year to provide practical and emotional support.
