Moms Matter Support Group Overview
When children are removed, many parents enter into shock. The pain is intense.  Each parent wants their child back.
Some parents get angry, others depressed, some stay in denial, others start quickly on their Reunification Plan.  
For moms, a free, peer support group is available from Fostering Great Ideas, a community partner.
Groups meet weekly, during a week day, on the bus line. A trained facilitator guides the discussion and encourages each participant to break down treatment plan goals into smaller tasks.

All moms want their children back. The program “Moms Matter” can help....We care about dads too - we have a program called "It's All Relative" for dads and the rest of the family, so children feel significant family support during this difficult time.
Moms Matter Process
1. Moms Matter is offered early on, often during a Family Group Conference, or later, as a mom prepares for reunification.
2. Anyone can refer a mom (Mom, Relative, Case Team, Caring Citizen). Fill out the form with all the information you know.
3. A Moms Matter facilitator will contact you within 3 days, to discuss the opportunity.
4. Social Services is given a simple, monthly summary:
        a. Does Mom come regularly? Is she on time?
        b. Is Mom participating?
