We can finally spill the beans on our October 2023 Basic Needs grant: Bethany Christian Services of Western South Dakota! This $25,000 one-year grant will support the Recovering Mothers with Newborns (ReNew) Program in Rapid City.
One-Year Support for ReNew Program
The Recovering Mothers with Newborns (ReNew) Program supports expectant mothers battling substance use disorders. They provide a tailored support system during the critical first year of an infant’s life, offering guidance, counseling, and emotional support. Their holistic approach encompasses mental, emotional, and physical health, with access to counseling services, support groups, and wellness programs. Renew collaborates with community resources, ensuring mothers have access to necessary services. Additionally, they equip mothers with parenting practices that foster healthy attachment and bonding.
This program has witnessed remarkable transformations, with mothers overcoming addiction and becoming confident, loving caregivers. ReNew is not just a beacon of hope, but a sanctuary of love, compassion, and healing. They believe in the power of recovery and the strength of motherhood, creating a positive impact for generations to come.
