Initial Training

International HELP partnered with the Liberty Godparent Home (LGH) in Lynchburg, VA for the first project following the COVID-19 pandemic. The Liberty Godparent Home is a program that helps young, single, pregnant women find a safe home and provides programs and resources for those with unplanned pregnancies. IHELP was able to pilot a maternal health and child safety course for the staff and volunteers at LGH. This course provided helpful knowledge that would be passed down to the soon-to-be mothers in the program.

The women who attended the course continually expressed how helpful and informative this class was for them. Despite some of them being mothers themselves, and volunteers to help future mothers, much of the information was either brand new or a helpful refresher. They left the class feeling excited, prepared, and ready to share this information with the young women in the program and help them feel more prepared for motherhood.
