Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Do you have a few hours to spend helping us devlop programs for young mothers and their babies? The mission of Friends of NYC Nurse-Family Partnereship is to improve the lives of babies and their mothers by providing enhanced benefits for the nationally renowned Nurse-Family Partnership. NFP sends registered nurses to make regular visits to first-time, low-income mothers, from the time the mothers are pregnant until their babies are 2. Friends of NYC NFP is developing and leading LEAP (Learn, Eat, and Play) programs which help the mothers meet and socialize with other young moms while learning about nutrition, finance, making toys out of household objects and much more.
We need VOLUNTEERS who can help us with:
Showing mothers the importance of interactions with their baby
Teaching about a rich learning environment
Show exercises which will allow babies to explore and learn
Utiizing early intervention knowledge to help our volunteer team develop programs for moms and babies
