Women on the Go Support Group for Mothers
Women on the Go is a support group for mothers who are new to the area and could use a little help adjusting to the community. We meet monthly for social, informational, and educational discussions that will make you a more skillful mom. Monthly dinners feature speakers on domestic abuse, legal issues, parenting skills, and employment readiness. Mothers attend job fairs at the Neighborhood House, the Family Resource center to receive food stamps, heating assistance, and a variety of support benefits. The friendships and connections our moms make extend to their children, who develop meaningful relationships with their peers that last throughout their school years. Many past participants return each month with success stories of full time employment, permanent housing, and improved relationships with their children. Free refreshments and childcare available. For more information, call 973-538-1229.
