I have had several families affected by COVID this past year, many lost jobs, their living arrangements were disrupted and financially ruined. Without the support from HCCSO many families would have not been able to get some supplies they needed.
I have a mom who was 5-months pregnant when I heard about the program and what supplies HCCSO can offer. This mom did not have any books to read to her baby. I was given some of the most beautiful and enriching books possible to offer to this family. The mom was excited and stated, “I’m so happy to receive such nice books, now I can read to my child while pregnant and after my baby is born.” The baby was born a few days ago and my mom received yet more items that she needed to have the best Breast-Feeding experience possible. We encourage our families to “Wear Baby” as much as possible and with having the Moby Wraps and Snuggettes the child can experience even more Bonding and Attachment with their parent.
Our program has some supplies in stock that were given to our program from HCCSO and we have many families in need. Our program supports families 0-3 years and the families we serve all have High Risks Factors. We know with the donations we receive will help families give them an opportunity to care for their child/children as best they could. Without your generous donations our family would not have as much peace and opportunity to be the best parent they can.
