…exists to empower young parents to meet their potential in an encouraging non-judgmental environment.Parents N.O.W. assists teen parents in becoming successful parents. While attending the program, teen parents will be educated by special speakers mentored by strong Christian examples, and be encouraged to enrich their lives through various life skills. Along with nurturing their parenting skills, they will be presented with an incentive program to earn “points.” These points can be used in the Parents N.O.W. shop to “purchase” various donated baby items such as diapers, wipes, baby Tylenol, children’s clothing, bottles, cups, etc. as well as items for the mom.
Parents N.O.W. meets the 2nd and 4th Friday evening of every month at Bethalto Christian Church. Both evenings include a devotion, classtime, and free childcare. The 2nd Friday also includes a free meal and an opportunity to use points earned in the Parents NOW shop.
