The group is a network of wisdom and experience, shared by caring people from communities around the lake.
They offer real support and solutions to mothers when they need it the most.
Mother-Wise's mission is to help new moms understand, through home visitation, that if they get depressed, they are not alone and effective resources are available to help them.
In their role as saathi, volunteers bring mothers the companionship of a listening ear and a helping hand.
If you have some time and experience to share, please consider joining Mother-Wise. As one volunteer put it, “If we could all help ONE family, it would make such a huge difference.”
Volunteers receive training on home-visiting, values, active listening, and perinatal mood disorders.
The next orientation will be held from Thursday, June 23, and Friday, June 24, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday, June 25, from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at 16140 Main St., Lower Lake.
Refreshments are provided Thursday and Friday, and Saturday includes a light breakfast and lunch.
Attendance of all three days is necessary to become a saathi.
