Q: I keep hearing that your services and goods are free. But then I hear you require points to buy diapers and furniture and stuff. If I am using points how are the items free?
A: It is true – everything here at the Center is free. There is no cost – EVER.
But it is also true that some items cost points.
These points are earned. They can be earned in various ways. The easiest way is by simply keeping your appointment. For every visit with a peer counselor you receive ten points. We also have Bible studies that range in value. For every study you complete you will receive points.
There are also life skills classes such as the Earn While You Learn program. Lessons vary in length from twenty minutes to approximately 2 hours. Points are earned when you complete the lesson. The amount of points earned is based upon the length of the lesson from about 50 points to 150 points.
Other classes are available such as Parenting and Childbirth Education Classes which also earn points.
The points themselves have no monetary value and can only be redeemed here at the Woman’s Enrichment Center. Items such as diapers, toiletries, furniture and toys can all be “purchased” with points.
