The Stork's Nest Program is a national project of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. in cooperation with the March of Dimes Foundation designed to:
* Encourage low-income expectant mothers to seek early and continued pre natal care
* Supply these mothers and babies with needed maternity and layette items
* Distribute March of Dimes educational materials on prenatal care
* Provide educational seminars through the Stork‛s Nest Educational Program(SNEP) which will ultimately result in more healthy babies through education and prenatal care.
This program has both service and educational components. The service is the establishment of a distribution site, the "Nest," where expectant mothers, referred by cooperating hospitals, clinics, and health centers, can get necessary items such as maternity clothes, layettes and furniture at minimal or no cost. The educational component consists of seven sessions covering prenatal care, nutrition, drugs, alcohol and smoking, genetics, infant care and parenting.
How Does It Work?
Stork's Nest encourages pregnant mothers to maintain a healthy lifestyle by providing healthy snacks and gives incentives for attendance at each SNEP class. Community outreach for needy expectant mothers is also an important facet of Stork‛s Nest.
What Can You Do?
You can attend a Stork's Nest Education Program class and tell a friend to come, too. Volunteers are always welcome to participate at the Nest or to assist with the classes.
The Dallas Stork's Nest is operated by Kappa Zeta Chapter through its 501c3 Charitable Arm, Stork's Nest Charity Fund of Dallas(SNCFD).
