We are in the process of trying to develop and implement an peer mentoring program to assist the mother's in our program. The mentors will be women who have faced barriers in their lives and overcome them and now want to give back and help others.
This project is important because we believe it will provide an extra layer of support to the mothers in our program and give women and strong sense of empowerment needed for continued success.
Heart of Courage empowers mothers with children in foster care to unite their families and create a better future for both mother and child. Heart of Courage helps women develop a healthy and positive perspective. We focus on strengthening: Attitudes -To inspire pro-social friendships and strong interpersonal skills, and to instill a sense of hope in the future. Goals - To empower self-sufficiency establishing goals and following through on commitments. Expectations - To expand the perspective of our clients and make them aware of life's possibilities.
