The programs that comprise the Children and Family Services programs all benefit from the Earn While You Learn program. Clients are able to earn Baby Bucks when they attend classes, meetings or are productive and receptive in home visits. With their earned Baby Bucks clients can shop in our Baby Boutique. The boutique also houses a diaper closet that clients are also able to !€œbuy!€ with their Baby Bucks. We carry diapers, formula, baby clothes, school uniforms, work wear for women, maternity clothes, small baby furniture and all baby essentials. The !€œEarn While You Learn!€ philosophy we take gives great incentives for clients to participate while helping them with items they may not have or are able to afford.
