By simultaneously mentoring foster mothers to care for their child, counseling them to overcome histories of childhood abuse, and keeping them together with their baby throughout, Our Mother’s Home is breaking the cycle of foster care for this forgotten special population of youth.
We promote their independence and integration into society through the delivery of support services including, but not limited to life skills training and activities (i.e. cooking, personal care, housekeeping, financial literacy, grocery shopping, etc.)
Adolescent mothers continue their high school education and receive the tutoring classes they need. The girls participate in our Nurturing Parenting Program, which introduces positive family values, which were foreign to them as children living in long-term multiple foster placements. Each young mother and her child also receive proper medical care including pre/post-natal care, well-child visits, vision, dental, physical and mental care.
Your commitment to Our Mother’s Home will do more than save the life of a child…it will preserve our community’s future as these children grow up, becoming active members of society, our teachers and leaders. In addition, we have designed our Mentored Living Program as a prototype home and model program that, with your help, could be duplicated all across the country.
Please join forces with us without delay; your financial commitment will change lives!
