The Venice Area Pregnancy Care Center is a non-profit tax exempt charity run entirely by volunteers. Our goal is to help parents with children that are in need, to provide safer, healthier, and happier lives for their children. This is done by providing the following baby items: previously loved clothing from newborn to size 5T, baby furniture, cribs, swings, high chairs, strollers, and more. We also provide baby food, cereal, and formula. The Venice Area Pregnancy Care Center provides two packages of diapers, per child, once every four weeks to the parents. Through grants from local organizations, we are able to provide new car seats also. Expectant mothers must be within 1 month or less away from due date to receive services.

We welcome donated items. For baby layettes we provide for newborns, Diapers, Onesies, Blankets, cribs & receiving, Sleepers, Hats, Bibs and Booties are all appreciated. We also accept Baby Formula, Baby Food and Baby Cereal. Other valued donations would be Bassinets and pack & plays. NOTE: We do not accept used cribs, car seats, or stuffed animals.
