You could also try the Children's Center located in Detroit. They are located on Seldon street (near Alexandrine and Woodward). I know that they take donations all the time. They also have a website but sorry I can't recall it.

I also recommend that you repost with specific items needed - I have a feeling you may receive more than you could ever hope just within this mamasource community because MAMA's are the most giving people on earth!

Hey N.,
My kids are long since grown, but I wanted to let you know that I'm praying for you. If you need a church home and a caring Christian community, check out Grace Bible Chapel, on Joy Road and Oakman in Detroit. Pastor Ken Hampton is a wonderful man and I'm sure the church would have resources to help. Tell him J. Koehler sent you.

Best love and luck,
J.

N., Here is a local (Lennon Center in Dearborn Heights) place that helps pregnant women in need. Best of luck to you and your baby!

Hi Nastissia, try Care Net Pregnance center. I think it's in Berkley. L. S.

Join FreeCycle. You can give and recieve gently used items for FREE. There are always posts for baby gear. Just be warned that car seats have an expiration date.

Mom 2 Mom sales are great too. Go to www.mom2momlist.com for a listing of sales. I have purchased a ton of clothes from there and usually only spend $20.

Congrats!

you can ask for items on freecycle. or try pregnancy centers.

The only place I can think of to look for equipment would be craigslist.org. It's a website where you can sell and buy used stuff of any description. There is always a ton of baby stuff, mostly very cheap, sometimes even free. I don't know of any services to get baby equipment but you should get in touch with your local health department or wic office, they may know of organisations that could help you.
Take care and good luck. :)

try the Council of Catholic Women from the Archdiocese of Detroit

make sure you enroll in the WIC program also

In case the above link doesn't work, AAA Crisis Pregnancy Center is located in Livonia, MI - ###-###-####. They are a pro-life organization that offers all kinds of services (at low cost and/or for free!)

Also, I'll bet a great resource would be your local Health Department and/or Department of Human Services (DHS).

I'm praying for & thinking about you.

Warmly,
B.

I don't know of any places that could help you with free items, but I do know that mom2mom sales are great. I have gotten tons of toys for really cheap, and I know they have clothes and bigger items as well. Also there is a place in Detroit called CAP (community assistance program) that could help, but I don't have an address or phone number. You should also go to the health department in your county and see if you are able to get WIC or any other assistance. I know they give formula, diapers, and vaccines for free. Good Luck, let us know how else we can help.

There's a place in Mt.Clemens called Compassion that offers these types of services for mothers and babies.

HI N.,

Check out the United Way's 2-1-1. http://www.uwsem.org/211/ They offer all kinds of services for people who are in need.

Good luck and take good care of yourself!

I am getting rid of my infant carseat carrier and three bases on craigslist, but would be happy to give them to you FOR FREE if you are interested. The carseat carrier was purchased in 2005 and has never been in an accident. I also have an infant bouncy seat with activity bar that works (batteries have been recently replaced) if you are interested. Personal message me if you are interested and we can work something out. Both items are in great condition.
If you prefer, a woman at my church works at the crisis pregnancy center in Lincoln Park and I know our church donates a lot of baby stuff there for expecting moms. I am not sure of the exact address, but here's the phone number: ###-###-####.
