Young Mother program addresses the complex needs of young parents (age 16-24) from highly traumatized and isolated refugee and immigrant families and includes:

  • Full time case management

  • Weekly individual therapy sessions  

  • Weekly mother and child bonding program

  • Weekly mother’s support group and children play dates

  • Regular nature and outdoor program

  • Regular educational workshops (i.e family planning, nutrition, pregnancy, breast feeding, food safety, positive communication, …)

All services are offered free of charge and interpreters are provided.

Our goal is to provide needed resources, mentoring, and support to end the cycle of trauma which causes violence, sexual exploitation and alcohol and drug abuse among underprivileged youth from refugee and immigrant families in East and West Oakland.
