Our program is an opportunity to experience healthy community and personal spiritual, emotional, and mental growth. We recognize that you are an independent woman and we want to help you strengthen the abilities that you have already developed. Our role is to empower you to reach your goals.


This is a general timeline that will guide you from the moment you enter the program. Our team will help you set short-term and long-term goals. You will check-in with our staff every three months to review your goals and assess whether our program is still the best to fit the needs of you and your child, up to two years postpartum.
