What is Babe?
Babe of Wabash County has three goals: to promote good health, education, and relationships with families in Wabash County who have children between the ages of pregnancy and five-years-old. We believe that in order to have a successful community, success starts at home. We also believe that our greatest service to the people of Wabash County will be by providing classes to help educate parents on good parenting skills and healthy lifestyle practices. There will also be a focus on getting kids preschool and kindergarten ready. By attending classes and support groups, we hope to help facilitate the creation of new and lasting relationships of families by connecting them with businesses and organizations that provide useful and essential services needed for the health and benefit of their children, as well as connections to other families and staff at Babe.
How does Babe promote good health, education, and connection?
We promote these values through an incentive based program. For example: When families visit the doctor for well-baby check-ups or they go to the library for storytime, they will receive a coupon that is worth $5 in value. Families can take these coupons to the Babe Store and redeem them for baby items such as diapers, wipes, clothing, furniture, and other much needed baby/toddler items. While at the Babe Store, families will enjoy connecting with other families through our classes, playdates, support groups, and other relevant activities.
