CAPC developed the Baby Bag/New Parent Kit to meet this critical need. The Baby Bag/New Parent Kit provides a wealth of useful tips and resources to both parents and caregivers, including a developmental growth chart, child safety information and CAPC’s Surviving Parenting Resource Directory.

Quotes

“I told my daughter that someone touched me as an 8 year old girl but I didn't tell my mom until I was 22 years old. She yelled, "Why didn't you tell a safe adult?!" I told her that we were never taught that we should. We just sat in shame. This program is amazing and THANK YOU!”
