Care-Giver & Infant Support
Dealing Hope is partnered with Redeem United in their formula program. This formula program is on a mission specifically for babies who have lost their mothers in childbirth or shortly thereafter. The caregiver of each baby must provide morgue paperwork to prove the mother is not living. We are huge breastfeeding supporters and would never provide formula for an infant who could be breastfed. There are occasions we provide formula for infants whose mothers have a disease or are on a medication that isn’t compatible with breastfeeding. The cost to provide one infant with formula is $50 per month. We provide formula until the infant is 12 months of age. When the caregivers of the babies in our program, come every week to receive their formula, they’re also required to participate in a weekly class. The classes we provide cover topics such as; ages and stages of development, first aid, in home safety, first foods, malnutrition, and much more.
