The Naomi Project, a mentor program for high-risk pregnant mothers, will be training prospective volunteers on Saturday, Oct. 4, at 8:30 a.m. at Falls Church Presbyterian Church.
There is a $35 dollar registration fee for the training, which covers lunch, training materials and a background check. The mission of the Naomi Project is to offer resources, a mentor and newly parenting program to high-risk pregnant mothers.
The goals of the parenting program are to promote healthy pregnancies, foster good parenting skills and help new parents plan for their futures.
The Naomi Project’s clients range in age from 14 – 46 and their volunteers range in age from 26 – 79. In 2013, Naomi Project volunteers helped thirty pregnant and newly parenting women, a project to which twenty mentors, eight area coordinators and eleven support staff gave 1,300 hours. The Naomi Project has helped 517 women in the 19 years they’ve been in existence.
