COVID19 Resources

Available Services and Supplies During COVID-19

Local organizations are working together to make sure pregnant women and their children have the supplies they need during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Please know we are here for you. We have information to help you find what you need. If you just need to talk, someone is ready to listen. We will get through this together.

Formula

During uncertain times like this, some parents may be tempted to stretch their baby’s formula by watering it down or waiting longer between feedings. This is not safe for your baby. Please reach out to one of these organizations if you need help getting more formula.

Supplies including Diapers

Baby supplies may be difficult to find or afford in stores right now. It is important to continue regular hygiene and diaper-changing routines during this time. If your supplies are running low, you can ask these organizations for help:
