About The Naomi Project
The Naomi Project is a volunteer-based program that matches at-risk pregnant or newly parenting women with trained mentors who are committed to promoting healthy pregnancies and healthy babies. Mentors work with women to foster good parenting skills; promote parental bonding; facilitate well baby/child medical appointments and immunizations; connect women to appropriate social services and other family services; and place women on a path to self-sufficiency for her and her family. In the continuum of care for pre/post-natal care in Northern Virginia, the Naomi Project serves a niche population that otherwise would go unserved because they do not fit within the criteria of other area programs.
There are five (5) Naomi Project program priorities:
- Prenatal Education
- Baby’s Growth and Development (including immunizations and reading to baby)
- Client’s Support System and Personal Needs (including depression and food insecurity)
- Baby/Child Safety
- Safe Sleep
In 2014, the Naomi Project became a program of Britepaths because both organizations have a shared goal of guiding local individuals and families in need toward self-sufficiency and personal responsibility and empowerment. We are grateful to the Giving Circle of Hope for providing a grant that has made this partnership possible, and to the Shepherd's Gate Grant Program for providing current funding.
