WACH operates the Baby Point program, a well established, well known, year round program specifically for qualified parents. Baby Point is a non sectarian, non profit 501(c) (3) sponsored program that seeks to help low income parents to care for babies in a hygienic and healthful way. It was initiated in 2006 as an outgrowth of Turning Point’s services to assist struggling families with the needs of infants and young children.
One central element of the Baby Point program is providing free diapers and gently used clothing to parents who can demonstrate financial eligibility. This includes the following, Mass Health or WIC card, food stamps, unemployment benefits or any public assistance with a current letter of eligibility. Participants must also provide a photo identification, proof of residency in the towns of Wareham, Buzzards Bay, Marion, Mattapoisett, Middleboro and Rochester.
Baby Point is offered the third Thursday of each month from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. at the Church of the Nazarene, 6 Rogers Avenue, Wareham.
No appointment needed. ID, WIC card, and proof of residence may be required.
