Every baby needs a car seat, but we know sometimes car seats can be difficult to fit into the budget-so we are to help! The Freeport Pregnancy Center now offers a Car Seat Program once a month on a first come, first serve basis with a limited number of seats available each month. The class is a one hour class on car seat safety, and to inform you of the services we have available at FPC. At the end of the class you will leave with your car seat, and the information needed to be confident in using your new car seat!
Our Car Seat Program focuses on keeping children safe by providing child safety seats at no cost to families. The Illinois Child Passenger Protection Act states that “all children under age 8 be properly secured in an appropriate child safety restraint system.”
