I have be in the employment of Baby Bear Hugs for almost 7 years and I have seen families change and feel supported through the first years of parenting. Baby Bear Hugs provides education and support in the home of the many families they serve. I have has a Mom call and share how much the program changed her life and her children's lives. She said "I did not used to know my children, but now I have taken that quality time to learn what they like and who they are". "Parenting is better now, my children are happier now, and it was because of Baby Bear Hugs."
