Preparation for Parenting (for girls who make parenting plans)

"Bootie Camp"

"Baby Think It Over," a computerized infant doll that's designed to simulate parenting, is the centerpiece of "Bootie Camp," an intense period (at least two weeks) that's intended to give each resident a dose of what parenting is really like.

Parenting Class

Parenting is taught-tests included-by a trained parenting specialist.

Lamaze Class

The Lamaze method of breathing assists in childbirth.

"Mom-2-Mom" Mentoring Program

Modeled after Titus 2:1-4, the "older women" are to "train the younger women" in such matters as it takes to become a godly mother and wife or girlfriend. This is accomplished through volunteer mentors who pair up with the girls. The goal is growth, in Christian faith, in skills at mothering, and all of the small necessities that can become major headaches without a friend to help. Also a part of Mom-2-Mom:

  • Mommy Store: As an added benefit to enrolling in Mom-2-Mom, by participating the girls are able to earn "mommy" dollars, which are used to "purchase" baby items, like cribs, strollers, etc., or needed maternity clothes and items.

  • Mommy Mini-courses: Another benefit of the Mom-2-Mom program is the regular mini-courses offered, usually given by experts in their fields. Topics include: reading to your child, child seat safety, breast-feeding, infant CPR and more.
