Mentoring Moms

True To Life – Spring 2022

For several months during 2020 and 2021, our volunteer translator Rebecca was able to work with our Pregnancy Support Services (PSS) social worker Julie and her client Katie* (not her real name) while Katie was pregnant with her third child. Katie is from another country and was in English classes but felt ill-equipped to have PSS sessions provided in English. Once Katie’s case with PSS was closed, Rebecca stepped in as Katie’s mentor. Katie has really benefitted from being mentored by Rebecca. Rebecca says that Katie has been reaching out and opening up often about her struggles. Rebecca thinks it’s rewarding to offer encouragement and suggestions to help Katie with her parenting. Katie says she feels better after talking to Rebecca and is so grateful to have Rebecca as her mentor.
