Review for Mothers Refuge, Independence, MO, USA
Mother's Refuge provides quality services to homeless, pregnant and parenting teenagers. They provide a wonderful, home-like atmosphere for the young ladies to live. I know that each young mom must continue her education and they also teach so many classes in-house to the girls. They teach classes in parenting, cooking, how to eat healthy, money managment, resume writing, job interview skills, etc. Really, about anything a young lady needs to know for becoming independent they assist them with. I've recommended this agency for many of my clients and have seen them grow and mature. Many have stayed in touch and are doing very well as a parent and are successful in their jobs and careers.

I have recommended and helped place many young ladies in their program as a community leader. I have been on site many times while making follow-up visits with clients. I have first hand knowledge of their programs, counseling, case management and educational opportunities.

What is unique about this organization?
Since they can only house 8 young ladies, Mother's Refuge is able to make the home more of a "family" atmosphere than in institution. that is the feed back from my clients that have lived there like. They have a very caring hand-on staff from the Director on down. They are not afraid to be "real" with their clients.
