Northeast Family Service Center
7340 Jackson Street
Philadelphia, PA 19136
Nearly 50 expectant mothers and their families will attend the free baby shower which seeks to promote various NEFSC prenatal and parenting programs. The event will also help connect families to other resources such as Career Link, maternity care, WIC, and more.
Ms. Beth Wood, NEFSC Administrator, said, “Baby Showers provide expectant parents with information and material support as they prepare for their newborn. They offer a time to gather with other expectant parents and parents with infants to share their experiences, and to enjoy educational games, arts and crafts, music, and food.”
Young women and mothers regularly turn to the NEFSC as well as other CSS Family Service Centers located throughout the Philadelphia region for emotional support and essential parenting resources needed to best care for their families. These centers offer comprehensive services such as counseling, mentoring, education assistance, adoption counseling, and enrollment in benefit programs, as well as providing prenatal and parenting support groups.
