Seeking a woman with a maternal heart
30 people are interested
Buffalo was recently ranked the third most affordable place to live. This has not gone unnoticed and because of that, Buffalo has the fastest growing population of refugees of any city in New York.
The Priscilla Project is a mentoring program designed to assist medically at-risk, socially isolated women through their pregnancies.
This project is one of a kind across the country, however it is something we cannot do without volunteers like you, women who have an instinct towards motherhood and a compassion to those entering that incredible part of their lives.
As a mentor, you will spend time with and build a relationship with a pregnant woman. This can include taking them thrift store shopping, assisting them with medical appointments and milestones, and just being a person in the community they can trust.
You don't need to have experience as a mother, while it is of course beneficial. However, we do ask that you be willing to commit at least 9 months to this opportunity. We try to pair a mentee and mentor up as early as we can in the pregnancy to allow as much time to build trust as possible. We also ask that you be willing to meet with her for around 1-2 hours a week.
