Transition society needs mom mentors

This program is designed to support moms whose parenting has been impacted by addiction

The Campbell River and North Island Transition Society is beginning a new training program for the “Moms Mentoring Moms” Community Based Mentorship Program.

This program is designed to support moms whose parenting has been impacted by addiction. The intention of the program is to enhance parenting skill, social supports and community involvement of the mother seeking support.

Would you like to be a mentor? Are you an experienced mom who would like to help another mom? Have you got three hours weekly to spare? This could be an opportunity for you to be a positive role model.

There will be training provided prior to being matched with a mom. There will also be ongoing training monthly. The commitment is three hours weekly and one meeting per month with the program manager and other mentors.

The transition house is using mentors in a variety of ways and if you would like to get involved they would love to hear from you. They are interested in gardening, cooking mentors and other skills that would be helpful to our clients. Check out the web site at www.annelmorehouse.ca for more information on what the transition house does. The training will begin Monday, Oct. 1 at 6:30-9 p.m. Phone 250-287-7384 for an application package.
