Lund Family Center
It is the mission of MOVE's Lund Family Center program to develop authentic relationships with the women and children at Lund through consistent support, communication, and active engagement. In remaining open to expanding our role with the organization, we hope to continue educating ourselves and the SMC community about homelessness, substance abuse, domestic abuse, teen pregnancy, psychological instabilities, and the power of rehabilitation.
The Lund program takes volunteers once a week to the Lund Family Residential Center. This is a rehabilitation center for pregnant or parenting mothers between the ages of 14-27. Through this program, our volunteers interact with women who are struggling, or have struggled, with substance abuse.
Volunteers may help out once, or throughout their time at Saint Michael's. Typically, we help with respite needs and participate in various activities with the mothers and their children. In the past, students have scrapbooked and baked with mothers and children as well as babysat the younger children in the play lab.
If you like babies and/or arts and crafts then you will love this program! For more information, please contact Elizabeth Kendall '14.
