PREPARES - The Pregnancy and Parenting Support Network
Prepares is a nurturing response of the Catholic community of Washington State to assist pregnant women, fathers, and their families by walking the journey from conception to their child's fifth birthday.
Prepares "walks the journey" with pregnant and parenting women, men and families who seek a healthy support network. They will have access to mentors and holistic wrap-around services from conception to the child's fifth birthday.
Services include: client intake and assessment by trained staff, pregnancy testing, parish-based mentors for mothers and fathers, parent support groups, individual and couples counseling.
Prepares provides referrals for urgent needs e.g. food, formula, diapers, housing and clothing. Prepares also offers adoption support and referrals.
