To provide mothers with an environment that will help them stop using harmful substances while raising their children and be the role models that children expect and deserve; thereby giving them a second chance to succeed in life.
To promote and build healthy relationships with mothers and her children. To create an environment that will allow families to feel empowered by having the necessary services provided to them. To have minimal or no child protection agency involvement giving mothers a second chance to succeed in life. The stress and turmoil of a removal of a child is very detrimental and can push a parent to relapse causing a vicious cycle.
To aid in transitional housing, drug/alcohol treatment services, preventive services, social services and home economic services, while mothers raise their children thus preventing separation. This will in turn provide the proper care for her children and establish healthy relationships.
We empower drug/alcohol addicted mothers to complete their day-to-day duties while being treated by a physician with medication (if needed), education, housing, and economic assistance as these are keys to successfully raising her children. While getting their services to maintain abstinence and sobriety, they will serve as role models to their families and prevent children from having to live some of the harsh realities of life when faced with these situations.
It Takes A Village proposes to assist mothers to be what they were intended to be... MOTHERS!
