JF&CS Lauren and Mark Rubin Visiting Moms is looking for volunteers to serve new moms in the Boston communities, particularly Dorchester, Roxbury and Mattapan. The Rubin Visiting Moms program matches experienced mothers with new mothers who would benefit from a supportive connection. The Rubin Visiting Mom volunteer, who receives training and ongoing supervision from JF&CS staff, provides supportive visits to the mother of a newborn once a week until the baby’s first birthday. Additionally, the Rubin Visiting Moms group meets bi-weekly for supervision.
Who We Are Looking For
Experience living in Boston and working/being with families affected by trauma is required. People of color are encouraged to apply, as well as others who are actively committed to cultural humility/awareness.
