Earn While You Learn
This program uses an “Earn While You Learn” philosophy. Clients are asked to participate in a series of classes and one on one meetings to discuss the stages of pregnancy, healthy living and eating, financial literacy training and child care. The more participation by the student the more “Baby Bucks” they are eligible to earn and spend in the Baby Closet on much needed diapers, wipes and formula. They are also able to purchase baby clothes, blankets, furniture and other necessary baby items.
