PARENTING WITH PURPOSE PROGRAM

Our Parenting with Purpose program provides pregnancy and parenting education and family support services. Services in this program include education tailored to each individual's wants and needs, emotional and spiritual support, case management, medical and community services referrals, assistance with finding and applying for resources, and much more.  *Sponsored in part by United Way Mower County, The Astrup Foundation, Walmart Spark Good

BABY BOUTIQUE

Clients participating in our Parenting with Purpose program get to "shop" (everything is free!) in our Baby Boutique after their appointment each month.  Our boutique features diapers, wipes and other toiletries, clothing, bottles, baby furniture, toys, books, and much more.

KITCHEN COALITION and FOOD SHELF

We offer a food shelf for our clients with a wide variety of staples, snacks, fresh produce, and more.  In 2024, we also began a partnership with the Kitchen Coalition program through Channel One and Second Harvest to provide locally prepared, nutritious, and well-balanced single-serve meals to our clients. *Sponsored in part by Channel One, Second Harvest, and United Way Mower County

POSITIVE PARENTING CLASSES

Our Positive Parenting classes are designed to provide parenting education to families in need that may be court ordered or otherwise required by the county, state, etc. This one-on-one education is specifically tailored to each person who participates.  By agency referral only.

SUPPORT GROUPS

We offer various support groups for families!  Some are just meant for fun, while others have a more serious theme at their core, but one thing they all have in common is fun and fellowship!  Please check out our facebook page or the calendar on our homepage to see current events we have scheduled!

CAR SEAT SAFETY PROGRAM

We offer car seat safety checks and installations (by appointment only), as well as emergency assistance with car seats (must qualify). *Sponsored in part by Freeborn-Mower RoundUp and MNDOT

TODDLER STORY TIME

Each month, we host a Toddler Story Time with stories, games, crafts, and lots of fun!  Please join us with your toddler!

TRANSPORTATION ASSISTANCE

We offer limited transportation assistance to clients in need who would not be able to come otherwise.  This may include taxi rides or bus tokens for in-town clients, or gas vouchers for those coming from outside of Austin. *Sponsored in part by the Austin Area Foundation and Freeborn County Co-Op Oil

INTERPRETER SERVICES

We currently offer interpreter services for Spanish, French, Karen, Karenni, and Burmese. *Sponsored in part by the Hormel Foundation

WHO QUALIFIES?

Pregnant women (and significant others), and primary caregivers (moms, dads, guardians) of children through age two-and-a-half.  We have no income requirements, as we recognize that everyone has need of the emotional support and education provided by Rachel's Hope, and that income on paper doesn't always accurately represent a person's living situation.  We do not discriminate based on age, sex, race, nationality, relationship status, financial status, citizenship status, etc.
