Thousands of children are seriously injured or die needlessly every year because they are not in a safety seat while riding in a car. If you lack the financial resources to access a car safety seat for your child, you may be eligible for assistance in obtaining a car seat. The Parenting Cottage offers car safety seat classes for all Lubbock County residents and a one time assistance program for car seats to qualified parents.
- Be the parent, primary caregiver or legal guardian
- Someone in the household must a vehicle
- Car must have working lap and shoulder belts
- Be in financial need of a seat
Classes are held several times monthly and class size is limited. Preregistration is required. A pregnant woman is allowed to attend a class and is eligible for a seat if she is in her last trimester (at least 7 months pregnant). See our Calendar for more information or contact us at (806) 795-7552.
In cooperation with the State of Texas Safe Riders programs, parents can access convertible safety seats and booster seats following the completion of a short class on car seat safety.
