Birthmom-to-Birthmom Mentor Program
APPLICATIONS FOR THE 2021 PROGRAM ARE NOW CLOSED. APPLICATIONS WILL REOPEN IN JANUARY 2022 FOR THE NEXT SESSION.
On Your Feet Foundation's Birthmom-to-Birthmom Mentor Program aims to provide one on one support to birthmothers by birthmothers in the On Your Feet community. In doing so, we will help birthmothers become more comfortable talking about their feelings around their adoption by creating a safe and empathetic space, enable birthmothers to achieve goals within their adoption and become better connected to the On Your Feet community in order to receive ongoing support, fostering a community which shares responsibility in the growth and support of its members.
