Mentoring Moms

"When one person mentors, two lives are changed."
- Kevin Sessums

The mission of the Elizabeth Ann Seton Mentoring Moms program is to embrace the sanctity of life by nurturing pregnant and parenting women.  We partner with a multi-faith based network and community organizations to assist mothers and enhance the lives of children.

Our Mentoring Moms program matches new mothers with volunteer mentors who provide guidance and assistance on such things as health, education, emotional needs of children and mothers.

We provide donated clothing, food, diapers and personal care items to moms and their children.

Who uses our services? Pregnant or parenting women who are seeking to provide a solid foundation for themselves and their children. Some of them are single mothers on a limited income, women who do not have high school education or job training, etc. All have a desire to achieve more as a parent.  Among the mentees we have served in the past year are 11 young women from around the world---Sudan, West Africa, Ethiopia, Korea, Myammar, Kenya, Togo, Nigeria, and Mexico. Four of the young moms came to us from refugee camps in various countries.

Woman-to-woman mentoring:  Many of our volunteers are mothers who want to share their parenting knowledge with new moms by modeling positive parenting skills.

How can you help?  We need women looking to make a difference in the life of a child.  You can offer help through professional services, educational program assistance, mentoring, babysitting or a donation.  There are many ways to become involved.

Client quote:  Isabella

The relationship has changed the way I see myself as a mother.  I have lots of hope for my future and for my children.


Mentor story:  Nancy

I am blessed to have been selected to mentor a young lady from a foreign country, which makes the mentoring also a learning process for me!  For the most part my mentee makes the decisions for her child and herself, but she will take suggestions and ask questions that may be hard for her to ask her own mom.  So I act as kind of a relief pitcher for her.
