Material Assistance

Because having a baby and raising a family is expensive, one in three families struggles with the cost of necessities such as diapers and wipes. It is challenging for these families to afford things like new car seats that meet safety standards. That’s where we can help.

Our store offers the following items at no cost to clients:

  • New cribs and crib mattresses
  • New car seats
  • Diapers and wipes
  • Formula and baby food
  • New and gently used clothing
  • Toys and books
  • Strollers and highchairs
  • Maternity clothing
  • Breast pumps and women’s sanitary items
  • And so much more!

Each item in our store has a “point” value. Clients earn “points” that are used to shop in our store area at no cost. Points are earned through participation in educational activities, one-on-one support services, support groups, or volunteering. Clients are able to choose how they earn points.
