They have Weekly Moms' Groups also.  These groups are inviting and open to all moms in the area.  Each week there is a topic that is discussed and moms have time to chat with each other about anything going on in their life.  Children are welcome to attend and find new friends to play with.

They have a Mom-to-Mom Donation Closet:  Maternity and baby items through size 5t available to any Lake County resident on a first come first serve basis.  Donations accepted too.  
Referrals to other local programs are processed through Mother-Wise to help connect families with all available help.
