The Elaine Howland Mother and Child Center has been one of our primary ministries for some time now.  It serves young mothers (and some fathers) who are in need and find themselves falling between the cracks in our society’s government supportive programs.  We provide diapers, clothing and other baby items for children.  We are primarily open on Tuesdays 11-4, however, mothers may come in anytime we are open for assistance.

Our ministry relies heavily on outside donations to sustain our program. We accept new and gently used children’s clothing sizes 0-16, and children’s accessories, as well as maternity clothing.  We are always in need of baby swings, car seats, bassinettes, baths, bouncees, and strollers.  We are open to accept donations Tuesdays 11-4,  and Thursdays 6-7 p.m.  Other times can be arranged by calling the office at 508-992-2224.  Pick-ups can also be arranged.  Please spread the word!  We love left-overs from yard sales!!
