Having a strong support system is a necessary part of the healing process as a girl adapts to her mother’s death. Usually, family and friends are the foundational layer of that support system. But having access to other trusted adults can serve as another layer of support, and mentors are a great option. They can be a wellspring of compassion, encouragement, guidance, and support. The benefits of mentoring for both the mentee and mentor are countless.
For that reason, Harriett's Daughters will offer one-on-one mentoring, group mentoring, and distance mentoring (as needed) for girls by connecting them with a woman who has lost her mother or someone who was like a mother to cancer.
There is power in shared experiences.
Are you a woman 25 years or older, who lost your mother or a female caregiver to cancer?
Are you looking for an opportunity to accomplish great things in your community by making a difference in a girl's life?
Do you want to be a catalyst for change by sharing your skills and knowledge?
Are you able to commit to a minimum of 4 hours a month for one year?
