Resources & Help for Parents

Parenting Classes

Abiding Hope offers a wide range of parenting education and life skills classes at no cost to you. Our Parenting Classes help answer many of the questions you may have about pregnancy, childbirth, and newborn care.

Local Resources

There are a number of great resources in Madison and Buncombe counties and the surrounding area. We will provide you with a list of these resources, including childcare assistance, pregnancy care management, trusted Ob/Gyn Physicians, and more.

North Carolina offers Medicaid for Pregnant Women (MPW) or pregnancy medicaid, a full-coverage program with benefits limited solely to pregnancy-related care. When you come in for your first pregnancy confirmation appointment, we will give resources for obtaining pregnancy Medicaid if you do not have insurance. 

Motherhood & Baby Closet

By participating in classes, expectant mothers earn points to spend on new and gently used maternity and baby items. Items in our baby store include diapers, wipes, baby and maternity clothes, hygiene items, and more!
