Pathway to Hope
Pathway to Hope is an “earn while you learn” program that allows us to walk alongside you during your pregnancy and after your baby is born. The program offers support and mentoring for mothers, fathers, grandparents and their families. We recognize the importance of responsible parenting and want to encourage parents to be caring and motivated. We desire that parents know they are not alone and can rely on our program for resources and emotional support. It is our goal that parents who participate will allow this educational experience to benefit their children’s lives as well as their own.
What happens at my appointment?
During your appointment, you will meet with a volunteer client advocate who will evaluate your needs and customize your classes according to your needs. The sessions last one hour and you are reimbursed for the time you invest with Pathway Vouchers. Pathway Vouchers can be used to "purchase" baby items in the Hope Store at the Women's Care Center.
Sessions are designed to begin at birth and continue through the teenage years. Some of the session topics include:
- Fetal Development
- Parent - Child Relationships
- Money Management
- Household Management
How do I earn Pathway Vouchers?
- Pathway Appointments
- Completed Homework
- Attend Parent Skillbuilding Classes (held twice a month on Thursday evenings from 7pm-8pm in the Dayton office - call for the next scheduled class date)
- Attend Childbirth class (scheduled once per month per quarter in the Dayton office)
