Central Texas Life Care
Central Texas Life Care has a program called Material Assistance Program. It is an education-based system of earning the things you need for your baby. Mommy Money and Daddy Dollars are earned by keeping an appointment with a peer counselor who will take you through a parenting lesson. The lessons are taught through a series of videos and worksheets that cover everything from pregnancy to newborn care. During your appointment you usually watch a video, then go over a worksheet and discuss the lesson together. You can earn even more by completing homework.
During these lessons you earn Mommy Money and Daddy Dollars, which you use to “purchase” needed baby items from our Baby Boutique. The MAP program has many lessons for you to work from, and lessons are individually tailored to each person’s need. By participating, you could earn enough to have everything you will need for you and your baby. You may also continue to earn Mommy Money and Daddy Dollars for your baby to purchase diapers, clothes, and other items even after your baby is born.
