Women Needed to Help Mothers and Families in Need!

Do you want to make a difference in someone's life? Do you enjoy working with women and families? If so, Mentoring Moms needs you!

Mentoring Moms, a program of the Volunteer Center of Bergen County, trains and supports volunteers who help overwhelmed mothers who are struggling with the responsibilities of children and life.

Volunteer mentors are caring women who understand how hard it is to raise children and want to make life easier for another mom.  Whether it is giving emotional support by being a sympathetic listener or providing practical assistance by connecting a mother to community resources, volunteer mentors offer the needed support and resources that help strengthen a family.  Parenting is hard work and most parents need someone they can turn to when they need a shoulder to lean on or some practical advice - our mentors fill that role.

If you are interested in volunteering or finding out more information, please contact the Mentoring Moms program at 201-489-9454, ext. 123. Our next training begins Monday, October 3, 2011 at at the Volunteer Center of Bergen County in Hackensack.
