SUPPORT FOR FAMILIES
Whether you’re pregnant or you have children in their teens, we understand that being a parent is both rewarding and challenging. Our “Earn While You Learn” program is designed to provide parents with emotional, material, social, and spiritual support.
Classes are available to men and women who are pregnant or parenting a child under the age of 18. While attending classes you can earn ongoing assistance with food, clothing, diapers, and formula to help alleviate financial pressures.
We are in the process of starting classes back up. Please follow our Client page here or the Facebook group for the latest announcements.
