It Takes a Village partners with St Johns Church in Ashfield

From our October 2014 E-Newsletter:

It Takes a Village partners with St Johns Church in Ashfield

We are thrilled to announce that St John’s Episcopal Church in Ashfield has agreed to serve as our fiscal sponsor for the upcoming year.  St John’s has supported our Mothers Group since its beginning and we feel grateful to have such a warm and welcoming sponsor to partner with as we move forward in serving families living in the hilltowns.

Did you know?

Did you know It Takes a Village offers the only Mothers Group in the hill towns of western Massachusetts that uses the Motherwoman peer support model?  In fact, two of our Mothers’ Group Facilitators recently returned from a three-day Motherwoman training at Springfield College.  Thank you to Motherwoman for providing partial scholarships for our two facilitators to attend this training and thank you to an individual donor for covering the remaining costs of the training.  A great example of donations at work and a little going a long way to support rural families with newborns and young children!
