Helping Mothers Heal
Helping Mothers Heal is a gathering of mothers who have lost their sons and daughters to violence. Not only a gathering, but a safe place to talk, to share, to be comforted by mothers who understand and are walking in the same shoes. It’s a place of challenge where we are directed to “turn our pain into purpose”.

Dad’s 1st is an extension of the Parenting Matters program component. FCH recognizes that many fathers are not part of the same household as their children due to incarceration and or other problems associated with Mother/ Father break ups. We believe Dads are still important and are needed for the development of their children in many ways, in spite of the issues among the parents.
