VALPARAISO – Kankakee Valley REMC recently presented Porter-Starke Services Foundation with a $5,000 grant to continue the “You and Your Baby” program to build parenting skills for first-time mothers.
The program was initially started through a grant from the Kiwanis Club of Valparaiso.
“I have really enjoyed spending time with and building positive relationships with the parents that have participated in the program,” said Todd Willis, director of Children’s Services at Porter-Starke. “It is rewarding for me to see these young families gain greater confidence in their parenting skills over the course of the program.”
The four-week program is provided free.
