When Childbirth and Parenting Alone (CAPA) Director Bonnie Deabler (third from left) submitted a grant application to Soroptimist International of Spokane, she had no idea that the group would help in more than one way. Soroptimist is a service organization for executive and professionals that works for human rights for all people, in particular to advance the status of women, and to contribute to international understanding and universal friendship. Not only did the group offer CAPA a $1,000 grant to help with childbirth education classes, but they also had a baby shower for CAPA, a Catholic Charities program that offers assistance to young single parents.
