How We Help
Parent & Baby Program
Everything you need for your baby – and more.
Through our Parent and Baby Program, we can provide parents the necessities that they need to provide for their children. Parents who are expecting and parents with biological children under three are eligible for our program.
Our Parent & Baby Program offers baby clothing, diapers, baby wipes, formula, cereal, juice and other baby foods. Many young parents face the daily challenge of simply feeding, clothing and providing basic necessities for their children. Given that, more expensive items such as baby furnishings – especially cribs, mattresses, car seats, high chairs, strollers, toddler beds, “Pack n’ Plays” and other necessities – are often nearly impossible to buy on limited incomes.
We’re a resource you can count on, not only for emergency and ongoing material needs, but for counseling services and educational activities that offer hope, guidance and fresh alternatives to support you as you improve your life.
How It Works
Our Parent & Baby Program offers all items and services at no cost, and you can be assured that you’ll never be turned away. The program operates as a rewards system called “learn to earn,” where you receive “baby bucks” for viewing instructional DVDs, participating in private counseling sessions, attending parenting classes, developing goal sheets and evaluations, volunteering at the Center and other self-help activities. You earn the privilege of shopping in the Center’s Baby Boutique for clothing, infant and toddler furniture, car seats and other types of basic necessities, allowing you to achieve your goal of providing needed items for your child.
Watch and Learn
A large part of TryLife Center’s educational information is shared through DVDs from our new instructional library. You watch the videos, and then participate in reading, writing and discussion activities related to the DVDs, allowing you to earn points for each DVD you view.
