The Mom2Mom model is basedolunteer mentors providing respectful, non-judgmental support to other moms and children. Both partners benefit from the relationship as the mentor witnesses first hand the strength of women living in poverty and their incredible ability to care for their children against very tough odds. The mentees benefit from material advantages and practical help for parenting and navigating the system. In addition, mentors link moms to other moms in their neighbourhood, to their children’s school and to existing community-based resource.
