Earn While You Learn is a program where cribs and car seats can be “earned” by attending parenting classes.

After attending our Earn While You Learn program, expectant parent(s) will receive material assistance to ensure they have the necessary items to care for their new baby. The items may fluctuate from time-to-time based on donations, but generally they include:

• Safety necessities (as available)
Strollers and carriers (as available)

The Earn While You Learn (EWYL) Program provides moms and/or dads to be with an opportunity to learn critical basic child birth preparation and parenting skills, while earning essential items for their baby.

Who can participate in EWYL?
The EWYL Program is available to any FIRST time parent  wants a better understanding of what to expect during labor, delivery and the early stages of her baby’s life.

How does the program work?
