Dec. 1, 2006
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - The Indiana women's basketball team lent a hand on Dec. 1 at the Bloomington Crisis Pregnancy Center and the Hannah House Maternity Home. The team sorted children's clothes and did some decorating for the holiday season.
"It's really exciting having the IU women's basketball team here, not only because they provide wonderful community service, but also because they are great role models for so many of the girls that are living at Hannah House," Tina Tuley-Lampke, the executive director of CPC/Hannah House said. "They show our clients that there are exciting educational opportunities out there and exciting ways to spend their time that are healthy and positive."
The Crisis Pregnancy Center (CPC) offers free programs and services to parents and soon-to-be parents in need. The center also provides material support to parents with children up to six years of age, including clothing, diapers, baby food and infant equipment. CPC also offers free educational opportunities, including parenting classes that offer emotional support and practical techniques for strengthening the bond between parent and child.
The Hannah House Maternity Home is a comprehensive residential program for pregnant women and teenagers that provide a safe home environment with case management services that address physical, emotional and spiritual needs.
"We are fortunate as a team to be able to provide any kind of assistance to such an amazing program," junior Nikki Smith said. "It's important for us to give back to the Bloomington community and we are all very excited to help out CPC and the Hannah House."
