We started servicing 4 teen moms with 4 volunteers. We've touched over 60. Today we have over 22 participants and over 60 volunteers. The impact we are having on the lives of these young families is why we exist.
Just recently, we partnered with a non profit organization to help a participant get safe and reliable transportation and help another participant get mechanical assistance for their vehicle.
We also worked with a participant, partnering with The Anchor Initiative Program and STATS to set in place a 6-12 month residential treatment plan.
The difference we are making in many of their lives is significant.
Samara's Village helped one mom to finish high school and be prepared to deliver and raise a baby; “without Samara's Village I'd be lost”
And one of our first participants, who we’ve been working with for over three years is graduating from our program and as part of the closure, we’ve provided contact information for Head Start, Smart Start, Kaliedoscope and Community in Schools.
