By participating in educational offerings, prenatal care, and community services, mothers earn points that can be redeemed for items such as diapers, toys, or other baby supplies. 

The HOPES (Healthy Opportunities for Parents to Experience Success) program offers family support services through home visits that assist with health and development, school readiness, socialization, parent-child interaction and parenting skills. Both the Stork’s Nest and HOPES are funded through Partnerships 4 Families, CEA, and have no cost to participate.
