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.
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. We hope to continue educating ourselves and the SMC community about homelessness, substance abuse, domestic abuse, teen pregnancy, mental health, and the power of rehabilitation.
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.
