Friend of Moms Baby Boutique provides new and gently-used clothing and other resources to parents in need. Anyone who is in need, pregnant, or raising young children is welcome to call for an appointment. Clients are not required to bring anything with them. However, we will have them fill out a one-page information sheet titled "Getting to Know You," which will help us look for additional needs and resources.
**The Friend of Moms Boutique is now open for clients. We ask that clients wear masks when they come. Only one parent will be permitted in the boutique at a time. Please call the church office at 314)741-3737 to make an appointment for any Wednesday from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.. Requests for clothing & diaper sizes for pickup will still be taken if preferred.
