I haven't blogged for awhile and would like to catch everyone up on the exciting things that are happening at Lois' Lodge. Thanks to a grant from the Weyerhaeuser Company Foundation the Lois' Lodge Mom Shoppe has launched! Using the nationally known “Earn as You Learn” program we are able to enhance the learning process for our moms by giving them a chance to earn Shoppe Cash for doing things that will positively influence their future and the future of their baby.
The Moms will earn “Shoppe Cash” by going to classes to learn about subjects such as parenting, cooking, adoption, health care, or career skills. Our clients in our maternity home will also earn cash for keeping up with their household chores and responsibilities as well as attending Bible Studies. Homework will be given which, upon completion will earn rewards of Mom Shoppe currency. The goal of this program is to provide our clients with special gifts for themselves or their babies while teaching them to be responsible and to work toward their goals.
For additional information on the classes and programs being offered through the Lois' Lodge Mom shoppe go to: www.loislodge.org/momshoppe.html
We are need of all kinds of volunteers for our Mom Shoppe- from teachers and mentors to babysitters and clothes sorters. If you are interested in volunteering contact Dawn at 704-376-8550 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
