  • WIC can help you with that. Its helps you with food and they have many other resources that can help you out when you get there. Such as diapers carseats and stuff like that.
    As far as maternity clothes go, you can check craigslist.

  • Thanks for your answers (: I live in a small city so craigslist doesn't have much posts. I do have WIC but unfortunately they do not provide diapers or baby clothing. I have also looked in the phone book my city does not have any resources. We don't even have a planned parenthood.

  • Contact some of the bigger churches in your area, they also sometimes help.....the times are hard, though, so I'm not sure who has funds available these days....

  • All the churches said they have no donations. :( That's why i was looking for a bigger organization. I really do need the help.

  • I had these same troubles and there was a parenting place that basically counsels you against abortion and they give you classes and after you complete them you get certain thing that people donate.Google and see if you have one in your area-.It was called Pregnancy Solutions here. I hope that helps...
