The Budget for Baby program operated entirely by Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society Volunteers, is designed to serve new, or prospective, parents who want to learn about the impact that a new baby can have on the financial situation of the family. Clients learn about variations in pay and increased expenses, common consumer pressures targeted to new parents, and entitlements available through both government and private sources.

The Layette is given to any eligible recipient* who attends a Budget for Baby workshop or receives individual counseling. It consists of a coordinated set of bedding and clothing, and a handmade gift from a Society volunteer, packed in an environmentally sensitive tote (valued at about $70!). To receive a layette, eligible clients should contact the Yuma NMCRS office to register for the “Budget For Baby” class or make an appointment to see a caseworker.

*This program is available to Marine Corps and Navy service members and their eligible family members and survivors.  There is no cost for this program.
