Parenting is hard
We support you and your child from the moment you walk through our doors until your child’s 5th birthday.
Caris’s Conception to Age 5 Program (C25) is our commitment to ensure that women and children thrive during and after an unplanned pregnancy. Using a multigenerational approach, we provide the extra support that women and families need during the first five years of a child’s life. We also seek to help mothers (and often fathers, as well) as they adjust to the challenges and needs of parenting during the first five years. These services include life skills workshops for new parents, early childhood services and support for children, baby supplies, clothing and equipment, and additional services as needed and identified.
Join us at one of our FREE core or seasonal workshops being offered at Caris. Our core workshops are offered every other month. Click on the read more button to see the schedule. Our Seasonal workshops are one-time events based on the needs of the women and families that we serve.
