Volunteers Needed: Momma Moments

Updated: Sep 15, 2021

Choices for Youth (CFY)'s Momma Moments program is a peer-to-peer support and strengths-based group for young parents or pregnant mothers. It provides moms and their children with wrap-around support to navigate the challenges of motherhood, which they often face in addition to social isolation, financial demands, and limited social and family support. Momma Moments currently operates in St. John's and Conception Bay South and is expanding to Paradise! Groups meet once a week for programming that emphasizes overall wellness - mental, physical, spiritual, and social - for both mother and child. Young mothers have access to healthy recreational activities, as well as resources and discussions on topics of family building, income supports, mental health, education, nutrition, and more.
