Let's have a heart to heart.
When I lost my mother after a long battle of her addiction, it rocked my world. Being raised by my grandmother, I was fortunate to have her guidance. With all the struggle I've endured I managed to become a successful entrepreneur in spite of my background of poverty and loss. I believe every young adult needs a positive influence, someone to guide them in the right direction.
I knew Students Without Mothers was the organization for me. I am pleased to be a Board Member and mentor. As we move forward together, I would love for my community to consider donating to this cause.
Each of our students receives a $4,000 scholarship (distributed in annual distributions of $1,000), life coaching support and grief counseling. The students participate in a year-long life coaching and grief counseling program during their senior year of high school prior to heading off to college. During these sessions they learn college preparedness and life skills including
How to Choose a College, How to Choose a Major, Conflict Resolution, Decision Making, Financial Aid and most importantly How to Cope with Loss as they deal with trying to move on without the love, support and guidance of their mother.
