M.O.M.S. - Mentoring Program Components

The Mentoring Program for Young Moms and Moms-to-be matches young mothers with a mentor. Once matched, the mentor will:

  • Visit or call once a week/attend monthly group meetings
  • Work with the young mother until the infant reaches his/her first birthday
  • Provide support
  • Assist with transportation to doctor appointments
  • Teach the young mother fiscal responsibility skills (i.e. how to balance a checkbook, shopping at discount/thrift stores)
  • Teach meal planning (i.e. grocery shop, cook together)
  • Introduce and refer the young mother to local resources/services available in the community
  • Teach and talk about mother and infant bonding.
