VULNERABLE MOTHERS AND CHILDREN 5 New Model Program Proposal With all the negative impacts that these vulnerable women and children has to deal with on a daily basis, let's focus on making positive outcomes out of this negative situation. Implementation of a new model program called Strong Women Raising Strong Children (SWRSC) has been proposed. This is a community center that will be located in McDonough, Georgia which is just outside of Atlanta, Georgia. Strong Women Raising Strong Children is for teen mothers, homeless mothers, poor mothers, and mothers who do not have their high school diploma. Only 50% of teen mothers receive their high school diploma which causes them to face unemployment as a young adult (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2017). This community center will offer high school diploma classes, tutors, day care services, prenatal education classes, counseling sessions, seminars, resume writing classes, interviewing preparation courses, a shelter, and transportation to medical appointments. When implementing a new model program there are always issues and risk factors to be aware of. This vulnerable population of women and children have been through so much already. These women want to believe that someone believes in them. To believe that they have the same opportunities as everyone else. They need to know that the world has not given up on them. Many mothers drop out of high school due to stress related issues and daycare problems. This program strives to relieve some of that stress by offering free high school diploma classes and also free daycare while you are in class. This ensures the mother that their child is being well taken care of so that they can focus on getting their high school diploma. Prenatal education classes will be available for the mothers that are bearing children. This includes nutrition classes, cooking classes, and infant care courses.

The main reason for not receiving prenatal care is transportation. These women are extremely young, extremely poor, or homeless and in most cases with no support system. Transportation to and from all medical appointment will be provided by strong women Raising Strong Children. The healthier the mother, the healthier their child will be.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
