PREPARES provides meaningful, local and sustainable support to mothers, fathers, and families as they nurture their children through pregnancy and early childhood.
The Foundation helps to financially support PREPARES. PREPARES is a statewide initiative of the Catholic Bishops of Washington State, and it was established in 2014. This initiative strives to provide support and care for expectant mothers and their children up to age 5.
PREPARES meets the physical needs of young families by providing material items, such as diapers and clothing. Regular playgroups and support groups are held by volunteers, and a group of dedicated individuals act as companions to help mentor and build community with families.
