There is a great group of extraordinary moms in Tehachapi, the Mothers of Preschoolers, and they gather monthly to encourage and support each other. Not only do these busy moms take care of children and family, but they also took the time to put together 20 baby blankets for the moms and babies at Family Life Pregnancy Center.

When a client receives one of the blankets, they are amazed that someone they don't know took the time to make this for them. Our clients' babies will be wrapped in the love and prayers of each crafty MOPS mom.

MOPS Tehachapi meets the first Tuesday of each month at Christian Life Assembly Church. They begin at 9:30 a.m. and end by 11:30 a.m. This group is designed to provide support and fellowship for mothers raising children from newborns to five years of age. The monthly meetings consist of brunch, a speaker, a craft and conversation with other moms. Childcare is provided. In addition to the monthly meeting, a child-friendly activity or play date is planned. In January, the blankets for the FLPC were made.
