Many mothers we serve are in their teens, grew up in the foster care system, or have been victims of abuse and trauma. Improving the chances for low-income moms and their children to outgrow poverty is a core focus of our work. The goals of the programs we support are: improving prenatal health for mothers; helping mothers provide informed, nurturing, and developmentally-appropriate care for their child; improving a mother’s economic self-sufficiency by helping her develop a vision for her future, often including continuing education and achieving professional goals; and, creating a community of support for women who often don’t have mothers or families.
