Mother2Mother Empowerment Series

9 Jan

Last month the YWCA New Choices program had a graduation ceremony for a group of women who had completed the Mother2Mother 14 week empowerment series.  The series addressed educational decisions, parenting obstacles, economic struggles, career choices, and offered peer-to-peer support. At the ceremony, guest speaker Elaine Robinson gave an inspiring talk to the graduates about finding balance. Certificates were presented by Director of New Choices Katherine Hensley, who shared a few words about each of the women in Mother2Mother. The program culminated with a potluck.
