Mission Statement

Our mission is to mentor and nurture young motherless girls.

Description

C hula's Mission is the first of its kind, as there are no other social service programs in the United States whose main objective is to nurture and mentor motherless girls. Hope Edelman, author of Motherless Daughters: The Legacy of Loss , calculates that about 330,000 girls under 18 years old in the U.S. have lost their mothers, and research shows that those who have lost a parent are at higher risk for depression, suicide, poverty, and substance abuse. Chula's Mission was developed to provide cooking classes, grief counseling, and a mentor program all specifically aimed at addressing the issues that put these girls at a higher risk for the aforementioned, hence reducing their risk factors. All services are free of charge.
