On Wednesday November 6th, Liberty Sisterhood is hosting a Cause Party for Mother and Child and Covenant House.
If you’re a woman in NYC, this is not to be missed! It’s an incredible opportunity to come together as a community and help support and empower other women in our city.
Liberty Sisterhood is partnering with Mother and Child and Covenant House to come alongside and empower these beautiful young women to rise up and be all they’re called to be. These women have come from extreme circumstances and have sought refuge and empowerment at Mother and Child.
More about Mother and Child:
“Being a good mother is one of the toughest jobs in the world, and it’s almost impossible when you are young, homeless, and without family. That is why our Mother/Child program was created to help these determined mothers and pregnant teenagers secure a brighter, more stable future for themselves and their babies.
Covenant House counselors motivate each mother to work hard toward achieving independence. Our counselors are available to help them create a plan for their future by lending an ear and offering advice or sometimes by being a stern voice, if circumstance calls for it.
Residents in the Mother/Child program attend workshops in parenting skills, child-bearing, and single parenthood, and we work to make sure the girls understand the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle – both for themselves and their children.
Covenant House’s Mother/Child program also offers free on-site day care so that our mothers can complete their education or hold down a job. And our girls depend on one another as well, setting up schedules for shared baby-sitting. Living with other young mothers helps them bond, learn from each other, and gain a sense of family they probably have never experienced before.” [source]
