Watch Luisa's Story
It is the goal of Baby Bear Hugs that all children will become productive, happy adults that give back to their communities; they will have every opportunity available to them to fulfill their potential, develop assets that empower them to resist failure, and have strong supportive adults in their lives. To this end, Baby Bear Hugs will provide support, education, and connection to community resources to all expectant mothers and families with children 0 - 3 years old Free of Charge.
The parents of yesterday supporting parents of the future... Because experienced parents have practical knowledge and wisdom they can pass along to new parents, using trained volunteer visitors is a strength of the program. This neighbor-to-neighbor relationship offers peer support and it insures that the program is not stigmatized. Families will be more involved with their communities. Visitors respond to the individual needs of the families, serving as a catalyst, to enable the families to seek help for themselves.
To promote positive parenting, enhance family strengths, and prevent abuse and neglect to infants and children.
Our goals include:
- Provide support to empower parents to solve their own problems and help reduce parenting stress
- Educate parents about child development, parenting issues, brain development, etc.
- Increase the parent's awareness and access to community resources
