Our Values

By virtue of the hope provided by our Christian faith, we embrace the following values:

  • Dignity: we believe in the dignity and inherent worth of every soul 
  • Encouragement: we come alongside and encourage one another in our journey together
  • Family: we act as a family, offering hospitality and community to any woman who chooses to invest in herself and her children
  • Integrity: we have the courage to face the truth and the future when we are honest with ourselves and others
  • Respect: though we may have differences, we respect and accept one another
  • Love: we lovingly serve one another with compassion and empathy

Our Objectives

  • Expand care services to homeless, pregnant women, and their children in the Rochester region.
  • Connect moms to educational opportunities to enhance their career potential and marketable skills including soft skills necessary for job or business environments.
  • Utilize a program model that conducts experiential job training in partnership with employers to increase skill levels, job readiness, and career pathways.
  • Provide access to entrepreneurial skills and experiences for moms to know how to thrive and work in small business environments; making them marketable to local small businesses.

Our Structure

  • With each of our mothers, we create a self-directed action plan along with the structure and resources that can lead to independence for a woman and her family. 
  • Each woman is connected with an individualized team of personal coaches who work with her on program goals, educational goals, and employment goals.
  • Women seeking completion of high school requirements or higher education are paired with a personal Education Coach who will work with them to reach these goals.
