Community Baby Shower
Annually Sara’s House/Place sponsors a community baby shower for expectant mothers from ages 13 and above. This is a gift of love to homeless and/or low income moms-to-be. We provide our mothers with a beautiful event just for them in hopes to help lighten the load and help prepare for their new bundle of joy. Our Community and Corporate Sponsors come together with Sara's House/Place and showers us with donations that are equally given to each mother based on the gender of their child. Each mother also receives a gift bag prepared especially for them for we must not forget to love on our moms as well. We do provide our moms with FREE access to the event. All donation proceeds also help fund out next annual shower this is a moment to pay it forward for new expectant moms.

We do celebrate women and children in various ways, however for our community baby showers we want to highlight those situations that are in dire need of love and support. We work hard as an organization to partner with top corporate entities in our community to provide a beautiful event for women who truly need help. We ask that you be sure to qualify before applying.

Education & Preparedness
We are very set on providing knowledge and information that leads to growth. We understand obstacles come, however we never want to leave you without a way to do better for the future. As mothers we know our children depend on us for love, care, and stability. It is our goal here at Sara's House/Place to ensure you have the proper tools to provide your child(ren) with just that. We provide workshops that are available once a month for 90 days up until our event. We ask that you participate in at least 1 workshop each month (3) in total to qualify for the baby shower participation points. This shows dedication to yourself and your new baby. Also it ensures that we've done our due diligence in providing adequate information and education to help you prepare for the road ahead.
Gratitude & Service
Situations may come and go but a grateful heart can be forever. We love to see your smiling faces at our events. It helps our team and community sponsors know we have truly touched lives with all that we do. We ask that you come ready to receive and full of gratitude. We are not always able to serve everyone due to donations and funding by our community. If you are selected to participate please understand how happy we are to have you. Please know that someone else may not have been able to receive from us this year. So you are extra special to us and we want to see how it blesses you truly.
