Maria Kitay of Angels’ Place and Christy Cozby of MAYA Organization met today to talk about the services that each organization offers to parents of young children. Both non-profits have an office in Swissvale and serve families in all of Allegheny county.
Angels’ Place provides free and low-cost quality child care for parents that are full-time students, as well as parents that work full-time and meet income requirements. If you are pregnant and wondering if you will be able to continue going to school or working once your baby is born, now is a great time to call Angels’ Place and find out if it’s a good option for you.
MAYA Organization provides free prenatal, Lamaze, and parenting classes, with the opportunity to earn baby items, clothing, and furniture. In addition, MAYA offers counseling, support groups and adoption services. Classes are held every day and you can call or stop by the day before to sign up.
Knowledge and support are two things that new parents really need. Pregnancy is an ideal time to begin gathering knowledge and forming a practical and emotional support network.
