Choosing to parent is the choice many mothers make. While it is a great choice for many, you need to ask yourself, "is my situation one in which a baby would do well?" If you have a stable home life and the ability to support your child, choose to parent! If things are tougher, it may be time to look at adoption. This decision is yours to make - and only you know if you are ready to be a parent.
Help With Parenting
We offer a program that lets you Earn While You Learn. It is designed to teach you how to take care of yourself and your baby from conception to one year of age. As you complete weekly program assignments at our center or attend doctor appointments, you will earn "money" that can be redeemed in our baby store. All items are donated and range from baby wipes to cribs, along with neccessities for you.
TANF ( Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) may be able to help with temporary needs. You can also get help with food through Women, Infants, Children (WIC). For more information and toll-free phone numbers see http://www.fns.usda.gov/wic/.
Many churches may provide assistance and parenting training. Visit www.usachurches.com to find one in your area.
