Donate to Purchase Essentials for Newborns

Layette Program

The signature program of Christ Child Society of Fort Wayne is the Layette program.  We work with local social service agencies and hospitals to distribute layettes to new mothers, often to those who have nothing to begin their new parenting responsibilities.  Each layette includes clothing such as onsies, gowns, receiving blanket and other essentials such as diapers and baby wipes.  In 2016 Christ Child Society of Fort Wayne anticipates distributing almost 900 layettes through the partnerships we have established.  Each layette is valued at $100.

Crib Club Program

Our Crib Club program is a partnership with the Women’s Care Centers of Fort Wayne. Clients of the Centers earn coupons by participating in parenting classes and other programs sponsored by the Centers.  Christ Child Society of Fort Wayne operates a Crib Club or “Baby Store” at the 3 Women’s Care Center locations in Fort Wayne.  Clients of the Women’s Care Center are invited to spend their coupons on diapers and other essentials including gently used and new clothing.
