HELP BABIES BLOOM-PLAYROOM
51 weeks per year
$ 2,145 sponsorship
The playroom is a critical part of our educational program model. We offer free childcare and a safe environment for the children while their moms are taking classes. The Treehouse children love story time, crafts, puppet shows, and creating hands-on healthy snacks during Mommy Meetings. We feel that the little ones are also participating in our programs, so we want to provide them with developmentally appropriate stimulation and shower them with love and heartfelt care.

MONEY HABITUDES
2-7 week sessions per year
$ 1,639 sponsorship
A key focus of Money Habitudes is on understanding the widely differing ways in which people behave around money. Moms examine the powerful symbolism of money– as a sign of power, status, love, security, independence, spontaneity, loyalty and more. Guided discussions also reveal how different behaviors reflect the influence of family, media, culture and life events. Using the award-winning Money Habitudes™ card game by Syble Solomon, moms discover their individual financial style, along with its advantages and challenges. This non-judgmental approach helps them manage their financial concerns in productive ways. Finally, moms learn to use the SMART model for building success in setting and attaining personal goals.
