There are youth who become pregnant while in the foster care system. Very often the girls desire to parents their babies but lack the ability to easily access the basic items to care for their child.
We have the great opportunity to come alongside these young girls, and sometimes their boyfriends, to encourage and support them as they become parents. This starts with baby showers where we provide all of the items they would need for their new baby: cribs, diapers, wipes, blankets, diaper bags, bouncy seats, clothes, bottles, and gift cards. Simply by providing practical resources to these young mothers and empowering them to properly care for their new babies, we are helping to end the cycle that sends more children into the foster care system.
