The Abilene Outreach office had the opportunity to participate in the Project Mom event on Saturday, March 22 at the Abilene Civic Center. This is the first time the Dallas-based event has come to Abilene.
MCH was one of 55 vendors who had booths at the event. Staff from Abilene Family Outreach were able to talk about the programs offered locally, discuss the need for foster parents in the area and network with other professionals.
It was reported that 600 mothers were in attendance. Project Mom was started as a way to rejuvenate and inspire mothers so they can go home rested, relaxed and ready to be better moms. There were four keynote sessions and presenters who talked about topics such as meal planning on a budget, growing a confident child, creative discipline, getting organized and crafts with your children.
