Volunteers are essential to the success of our program. The young women we serve need positive role models who will encourage them to be good parents and productive citizens. Perhaps through your example, they someday will choose to give themselves to help others.
You can help:
Maintenance, plumbing and repairs
A mentor is a woman over 21 who has the time, commitment and desire to build a special relationship with a pregnant and parenting teen.
What does a “Mentor” do?
Phone calls, visits and outings provide opportunities to make a difference in a young woman’s life.
