Better Me is an “earn while you
learn” program that allows us to walk alongside you during your pregnancy and
after your baby is born. The program offers support and mentoring for mothers,
fathers, grandparents and their families. We recognize the importance of
responsible parenting and want to encourage parents to be caring and motivated.
We desire that parents know they are not alone and can rely on our program for
resources and emotional support. It is our goal that parents who participate
will allow this educational experience to benefit their children’s lives as
well as their own.
