Do I have to be approved to receive services?
No. Unlike other women and children service organizations, we do not impose financial restrictions or eligibility criteria on our clients. We therefore frequently assist needy families who “fall through the cracks” in qualifying for other agencies’ services. Although we primarily serve mothers and mothers-to-be, we also assist fathers and grandparents caring for their child or grandchild. You must simply be an expectant mother, a parent or a primary care giver of a child, under the age of 2 years.
Where do I go to receive items?
The Marshall Catholic Newman Center is located on 5th Avenue, right across from Corbly Hall. We are between the Welcome Center and the Alumni Center. You can call our office to set up an appointment with one of our volunteers, or simply come by during normal business hours. Monday thru Friday 9a-5p.
Do I have to be a Marshall student to receive benefits?
No. Although we strive to be a resource for parents who attend the University, others will not be turned away so long as we can help meet their needs.
Do I have to fill anything out?
Yes. We have a simple intake form to learn a little bit more about each of our clients. We also must report to our regional coordinator, any items that are given away. Of course, any information gathered from the client remains completely confidential and any information we obtain will not be used for the purpose of excluding a client from the benefits of the program.
