Hands of Hope: Mentoring At-Risk Moms

Due to the unfortunate rise in the number of drug-dependent babies born experiencing Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome, there is a gap in resources to help guide mothers and babies through the first year of life. MDC will provide a comprehensive one-on-one mentoring program for first-time mothers in addiction treatment and recovery. Trained mentors will commit to a minimum monthly contact with the mentee to help them maintain sobriety, be engaged mothers, and create a healthy home environment.
