Partnering with and supporting women during the first postpartum year
Mom2Mom- Jerusalem is an evidence-informed and continually expanding home-visiting project, aimed at providing emotional support to mothers during the first postpartum year.
Mom2Mom- Jerusalem is a pioneer of home visiting in Israel, established in 2000, modeled after Visiting Moms, Jewish Family and Children Services, Boston, MA, USA.
Our home-visitors are women from the community who are volunteers, trained and supervised by project coordinators who are professionals in the field of child development and social work.
All of our services are provided free of charge
Meaningful Work. Unforgettable Experiences.
Whether parents are experienced or not, they may experience new and unexpected challenges after the birth of a new infant. Having someone ‘by their side’ who listens and understands can reduce parents’ stress, supports their efforts to be the parents that they want to be, and promotes the health and wellbeing of the whole family.
Become a Volunteer
Join our team of wonderful volunteers whose ‘job’ it is to listen and support families with young babies in Jerusalem.
Reflective training and supervision by professionals on staff are enriching experiences for volunteers and staff, alike.
The project’s tenets of diversity and inclusion foster quality relationships between volunteers and between volunteers and moms who join the program.
