Parents receive coupons for learning about nutrition and parenting, keeping prenatal and well child appointments, childbirth classes, and keeping their children’s immunizations up-to-date. Some parents also earn coupons by continuing their education.
A Baby’s Closet helps families experiencing hardships by providing essential baby items to safely and adequately care for their children. The program provides a unique opportunity to earn coupons which can be redeemed for clothing, car seats, and baby supplies.
