Support a pregnant woman
44 people are interested
Priscilla Project of Buffalo is a mentoring program for medically at-risk and socailly isolated pregnant women that provides education, support, and friendship, and assists with access to healthcare and social services.
As a mentor we ask that you meet with your mentee (a pregnant client) about 1-2 hours a week in her home, until about 6 months after your mentee has given birth. During that time you and your mentee decide on what activities you would like to do together. Sometimes, mentees ask for help with shopping (WIC), a ride to a doctors appointment, or just to spend time doing fun activities.
We work with American women, as well as, those from many different countries including Burma, Iraq, Congo, Somalia and Nepal, ranging in age from 14-45. English speaking abilities range, as well, depending on the client. Some clients speak just a little English, others speak none at all, and some have family members who can help to break the language barrier. We typically work with women who are having their first child in the United States, but there are cases were it is the second child.
No previous experience necessary. We provide training and on-going support.
