Interim Care For babies

Spence-Chapin’s Interim Care Program allows babies to be cared for in a loving home by a nurturing caregiver straight from the hospital so that parents have additional time to plan. Parents retain parental rights while their baby is in Interim Care and are FREE to visit their child.
