For 20 years Welcome Baby has been in the business of creating stronger families. Located at 721 Foster St. in Durham and funded by Durham’s Partnership for Children, Welcome Baby has a number of programs including a car seat safety program and a free clothing closet. Welcome Baby also helps individuals link to outside community resources.

But the focus of Welcome Baby is its parenting education programs. Sessions include “The Incredible Years,” a program that helps parents interact positively with their young children and the “Circle of Parents,” a forum where parents can exchange ideas and concerns.
