We are doing all we can to help families navigate the COVID-19 pandemic.

Your family’s health and safety are our top concern.  Our team is working remotely; answering phones, holding classes online, tracking the ever-changing resources available to help families.

We’re here to help. Call our Family Help Line at 1 800 932 4673. We have served over 5,000 parents and children since the pandemic began. We cannot count how many times parents have told us “You are the only ones answering the phone!”

We know that your babies are on the way. We know that families need resources now.

Our Great Starts Program is offering interactive online classes for new and expectant parents – birth classes, Conscious Fathering, newborn care – it’s all here. Learning and connecting with our instructors and your fellow students is a great way to prepare for becoming a new parent!
