YWCA New Choices Mother2Mother Group

14 May

The YWCA New Choices program is structured to assist our participants to move toward the essential components of stability so that they can become more economically self-sufficient. Through our intake process, participants create their own action plans with both short term and long term goals to move toward earning a greater income. Career counseling, advocacy, and resource referral are all key components of this  program. Participants have a review at least every six months to assess and set new goals.

The mother2mother/woman2woman group provides community and options for women facing education, parenting and economic struggles. This group meets at the YWCA on Tuesdays from 10-12 pm. Drop-in Child care, peer to peer support and coffee offered during this meeting.

Sessions are as follows:
1. Discovering Yourself ~ Core Values
2. Feminine Beauty ~ Building Self Esteem
3. Healthy Living, Moving More
4. 101Technology
5. Positive Language & Parental Skills
6. Getting your finances “OnTrack”
7. Reaching your Financial Goals
8. Searching for meaningful career skills
9. Ready to Launch ~ Job Search

A group recently graduated from mother2mother/woman2woman.

Here’s what one participant had to say about her experience: “New Choices means the world to me. As I felt defeated, the YWCA instilled in me not to let go of my hope. New Choices has taken me by the hand and encouraged me to press on and move forward and not to give up. With Mother2Mother I can hold onto my hope and turn things around for a better life.”

 Another stated: “New Choices has been a wonderful experience for me. The resources are great, and every time I leave the group I walk away learning something new. Keep up the good work!”
