Self-Care Kits for Moms and Dads! 

When a parent graduates from our Nurturing Home program, they’ve not only improved empathy, made deeper connections with their children, and learned new ways of coping with family stress… they’ve also done a lot of good work toward breaking multi-generational cycles of childhood trauma. These parents are ROCK STARS and we LOVE to be able to give them a little treat for continued self-care. Now for the need part…we’re running very low on supplies for our kits!

What we need:

anything that would make a mom or dad’s day a little nicer… but nothing perishable

For MOM: herbal tea, spa treats like masks, nail polish, or lotion, scented candles...

For DAD: beard oil/shaving kit, gift card to Best Buy or Game Stop, scented soap/lotion...

We’ll accept these items at our Nashville location at 139 Thompson Lane Monday-Thursday 9am-5pm
