Advice & Aid is about more than just helping women through their immediate crisis and saving babies. Our mission states that we serve families before, during, and after their pregnancy. The Connections program is designed to fulfill the “during” and “after” parts of that mission statement and to follow through on the, “We’ll walk through this with you,” offer that we often make in our initial counseling appointments.
Our Connections Mission Statement:
Equipping and supporting new parents who have embraced an unplanned pregnancy by providing a safe, loving, compassionate environment where they can prosper and grow.
To provide a well-balanced, holistic program, we address the full person:
We strive to provide programming that addresses our client’s most pressing needs:
- Parenting Support
- Material Aid
Finally, we desire to bless program participants with material aid such as diapers and wipes, children’s clothing, gift cards, Thanksgiving meals, and Christmas gifts.
For fathers in our program, you can expect a support group designed to help prepare men to become strong dads and build strong families.
You will receive encouragement and training from a group of men whose sole job is to be there to help others succeed at the tough job of parenting. It is held in a safe, compassionate environment, where dads can feel free to express questions and concerns and get true help from other men who have already been in their shoes.
Our Connections Program meets on Monday nights at our facility and provides a meal for participants once a month. Nursery care is provided to children from birth through age 3 to enable more clients and fathers to participate in the program.
