Our Parenting Program

Intensive parenting support classes are held for the parents of our students at the Nurture Center each Tuesday evening from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. with child care provided by Baylor Urban Missions September through May. This informal, but planned, time gives families an overview of topics from child development and parent-child interaction to health issues and care of the newborn. It also provides a forum for often-young mothers and mothers-to-be to ask questions about pregnancy, childbirth, or other issues that arise with their infants and growing toddlers.

The programs also cover a wide variety of topics that offer the families guidance and assistance with:

  • Health & Family Planning
  • Child Development
  • Parental Self Care
  • Education
  • Job training
  • Employment
  • Budgeting
  • Life Skills
  • Addiction recovery
  • Appreciation for the beauty of a child’s unfolding life
  • Monthly Bible study

We appreciate the support of many community service organizations that offer their own brand of programming. Feel free to make a suggestion by contacting Donna Losak.

Volunteer Opportunities
If you, your church, or civic group might provide:

  • A meal for Parents Meeting (for parents, children, or both)
  • Provision of “gifty” items as Parent Meeting incentives (a great project for a Sunday School class; just one Sunday have a drive for gift items like lotion, bath gel, shampoo, a set of towels, a set of sheets, picture frames, home decor items, etc.)

Please call 753-1144 for more information.
