Parenting Support

Education is a big part of the services we offer here at the Mosaic of the Southern Tier.  Over the years, we have increased the amount of programs we offer because we feel that educated parents are empowered parents. 

The Life Center is specifically for the purpose of providing free parenting education and material help to our community.
You can find us at:

Elmira, NY 14901

Monday 9:00-5:00

A few of the programs the Mosaic of the Southern Tier offers are: 

Earn While You Learn: The Earn While You Learn Program was developed as a way to provide parents with ongoing, one on one support through parenting lessons and information, while giving them the ability to earn Baby Bucks. Baby Bucks can be used in our Baby Boutique to purchase items for their children, or themselves in our Mama Corner. Items for purchase include clothing (from newborn sizes to 5T), diapers, wipes, baby food and formula, baby care items, and even larger baby items (strollers, playpens, etc.), and so much more! 

M.A.N. Program: The M.A.N. Program is led by our male volunteers, and it is a parenting program for men with children, or who are expecting a child. It consists of 12 lessons, and every Dad who participates will earn Baby Bucks to purchase items in the Boutique for their child, or for themselves. 

Material Assistance: Here at the Mosaic of the Southern Tier, we understand that the families in our community have material needs, and we’re excited to be able to offer our assistance. Perhaps you need diapers, wipes or other clothing. Give the Life Center a call to find out how we can help. 

Community Referrals: If you and your family need help, and we’re not able to provide you with assistance through our programs, we will work hard to find a community program that will be able to help you. Our community referral program helps us reach out to other area agencies to help support you and your family’s needs. 

If you or someone you know could benefit from any of these programs, we want you to know that we are here to help you succeed! For more information on how we can assist you, please contact us.
