“Oliver” is an adorable 8-month old baby whose teen-aged parents are doing their best to meet his needs. Oliver’s mother left home at 16 to get away from a toxic situation. She has completed her GED and is currently taking classes at COCC. She is also providing in-home care for a neighbor’s child to bring in some extra money. The family has a lot on their plate right now, but loves their baby boy very much.
Thanks to Hayden Homes, “Oliver” and seven other babies from MountainStar’s Healing Children program slept safely and soundly last week in brand new cribs donated by Hayden Homes.
During the shopping spree, members of the Hayden Home team and Robyn Lopez Melton, Hispanic Outreach Coordinator and Program Specialist with MountainStar, set out for visits to Walmart and Costco and they returned with eight cribs and mattresses, and supplies including crib bumpers, blankets, diapers and wipes, stroller, baby gates, bathtubs, and more.
