Support for Parents & Material Assistance
Cost-free aide for women and families in our community.
At First Step, we provide compassionate care AND practical support, which means we holistically care about our clients' spiritual, emotional, and physical needs. We also know that being pregnant and starting a family can be expensive, so thanks to our generous donors, we are able to provide material assistance at no cost.
We help equip moms and dads to be the parents called has God them to be. We provide one-on-one education and group classes for baby care, parenting, prenatal health, and more.
Our Baby Boutique is filled with lovely new and gently used items for moms and babies. From maternity clothes to diapers, wipes, formula, handmade blankets, baby furniture and boys and girls clothes up to 2T, these quality donations are for our clients first, as well as anyone in need. We swap out the clothes seasonally, and have special events (Fill-A-Bag Fridays) to ensure no one goes without. The number of outfits or items given away is based on our Earn While You Learn educational classes. Learn more about how you can give to moms and families at First Step!
High-quality prenatal vitamins are given to all our clients with a positive pregnancy. This helps to ensure that mom is healthy and baby is getting the nutrition he/she needs.
Moms are also given a Layette Basket when their baby is born to welcome him/her to the world. The layette consists of baby outfits, diapers, wipes, a handmade blanket, and other gift items. We even include an instruction manual!
