Promoting healthy moms and healthy babies
Hope Chest is an incentives program for pregnant and parenting women of all ages, income, races, religious affiliations and needs, focusing on the health of babies across the Permian Basin. It encourages responsibility and healthy behavior during and after pregnancy.
Through a point system, mothers earn free necessities including diapers, wipes, wash cloths, bath tubs, clothing, toys, bottles, bibs, Orajel, Q-tips, medicine, strollers, shampoo, blankets, cribs, crib sheets and car seats.
In addition to doctor appointments and classes, there are ways to gain additional points by attending health & wellness events, our annual stroller walk and more. A mother and her baby are eligible for the Hope Chest program until the baby turns two-years-old.

Hope Chest of Midland Testimonial:
"Hope Chest has helped educate and prepare me for pregnancy, labor and delivery. I greatly appreciate being introduced to this program and being able to be a part of such an amazing group of instructors and young ladies. This program is not only educational but also very helpful when it comes to being able to provide the best items one needs to care for a baby, both emotionally and physically. The simplicity of the course is awesome! All the instructors want is that we soon-to-be moms have a healthy pregnancy. We are awarded points for every class we attend, prenatal appointments and so much more. And with those redeemable points, we can get those necessary baby items straight from the Hope Chest wall. Even when things are difficult, there's always help with Hope Chest. Hope Chest has given me a sense of security and comfort. I'm truly grateful, knowing that I have been given some extra guidance with what to expect throughout pregnancy, labor and even life itself (becoming a mother). I would definitely recommend this program to any soon-to-be mother." - Alexandra Gonzales
