What is M2M?
So, what is Mother-to-Mother?  It is essentially a
mentoring program that pairs young mothers with
experienced mothers. Our mission is to strive to
create self-confident young parents with hope for
the future through education, support, and
services in partnership with the community

What We Do
In addition to the above we
  • sponsor regularly-scheduled activities where
    you can meet and participate in programs that
    promote the physical and social growth of you
    and your child
  • introduce you to additional programs and
    services in the community
  • offer encouragement and advice while you
    continue your education and prepare for the
    future

If You Join
You will be paired with a mentor who will
  • listen to you and offer her experience
  • applaud your accomplishments
  • share the good times as well as the bad
  • maybe even go shopping with you!

You will receive information and instruction
concerning important child care issues such
as
  • safe sleep for infants

  • childhood immunizations
  • infant massage techniques
  • shaken baby syndrome

You will be invited to join other young
mothers and their babies for activities such as
