HOPELINE

LIFE AND FAMILY SERVICES

Spring is here!

Spring is here, but in Northeast Indiana some days we have to create our own sunshine!

2016 has been inspiring at Life and Family Services. We have been experiencing an increase in clients accessing our services.

The Pregnancy and Parenting Resource Center and B.A.B.E. Store are averaging 4 to 6 new clients each week. The clients are seeking pregnancy and parenting education from our offices as well as shopping with their earned vouchers in our well stocked B.A.B.E. Store. Some of the new shoppers are accessing healthy services for their family from one or more of our 37 partners throughout the Noble County Community.

Ligonier B.A.B.E has relocated to Stone's Hill Church. This relocation was due to new ownership and the owners had other plans for the space. The Ligoner hours are Tuesday 1 p.m. - 6 p.m. for education and shopping. Thank you Stone's Hill for your generosity! We appreciate the support received from our Ligonier Churches during this relocation. God Bless you all!

We have blooming children in Teen Parent Early Learning Center. Our infants are reaching their 1st birthdays and movement is reaching a new level as they all are walking or close to it. The toddlers are very interested in sensory experiences. The curiosity can be seen on their faces with each new experience. The Pre-K children are trying out their green thumb. They have planted seeds in hopes to transplant the seedlings outside and grow vegetables. They are also learning about the transformation of caterpillars into butterflies.

If you know of a teen or a single college mom needing care for their young child, please have them contact Teen Parent Early Learning Center ** 260-347-9169.
