After coming to the U.S., Eleanor was hoping for a better life.

Now she has the support she and her child need!

Amica Center’s social services team received a referral for a client expecting her first child at the end of last year. Eleanor’s misread ultrasound had led to a two-month due date discrepancy. This meant she had less than a month to prepare for her child without being employed and with no support from her family!

Our social service team connected Eleanor with community resources for her and her baby! Thanks to generous people like you, Eleanor received diapers, food, clothing, and a car seats troller combination to transport her baby safely.

Eleanor received parental classes to better advocate for care, created a birthing plan, and ensured she had medical insurance to cover the delivery. As a result, both Eleanor and her child are thriving.
