Emily’s Light volunteer experiences are designed specifically for moms. They are meaningful, social, and accessible volunteer experiences designed to amplify the mental wellness benefits of volunteering. The experiences are short and built to help moms build community while serving others.
After each volunteer experience, Project Helping hosts a community hour for moms. This time is designed to allow moms to connect with each other, discuss the issues they are facing, and find peer support.
The Emily’s Light program is designed to give moms meaningful volunteer experiences that build mental wellness. In addition, moms have the opportunity to create a community of peers that they can rely on for support throughout motherhood. This community will reduce isolation, improve mental wellness, and create a peer support system for moms at all stages of motherhood.
To make participation easy, Project Helping provides childcare during the mom’s experiences. Through our partners at Arts and Minds, we provide educational, engaging programming for children so moms can focus on their mental wellness and building community.
