H.O.P.E Mentoring Program – Helping Others Parent through Education
Our popular “H.O.P.E.” program helps to answer many of the questions you may have about pregnancy and newborn care. Many clients find their mentor to be the most helpful aspect of the program. Through regular lessons that include videos and worksheets, you’ll learn important and interesting information about your pregnancy and your baby. There are a number of topics to choose from and your mentor will put together a lesson plan that is unique to your needs and will help you better understand the challenges and joys that lie ahead.
With each lesson you have the opportunity to earn “baby bucks” that can be used to purchased new or gently used baby and maternity items such as clothing, diapers, and variety of infant care products. Brand new car seats, strollers and cribs may also be purchased with “baby bucks” when available.
