Brave Beginnings Program
is a mentoring program for single moms, both those staying at Deb’s House and those who don’t. This is a year long commitment by a single mom to meet weekly with her "mentor." Together, as part of Brave Beginnings, we will design a program to help her solidify and accomplish her goals and make steps toward discovering her dreams. As we walk alongside her on her journey, we may help her:
Assure her home and family is safe
Deal with legal issues
Further her education
Learn parenting skills
Restore family relationships
Get out of debt
Find gainful employment
Bolster her self-esteem and confidence
Develop a friends and family support base
Choose a place to make her own home
The Brave Beginnings Program consists of 12 sessions of a video series "New Start for Single Moms", 13 sessions of "Alpha Course," a video series on the basics of the Christian faith, and 3-5 sessions of "Steps to Freedom in Christ."Program Fee and Activity Awards
Each month the participants agree to attend activities, perhaps 3-4 per week. Activities could be church, meeting with ATLAS mentor, Brave Moms, education classes, Celebrate Recovery, etc. At the end of the month, Atlas will award her $10 for every activity she attended, up to $160 per month. At the end of the year, as she has completed the Brave Beginnings Program, she will receive the total of
what she has earned as Activity Awards. This is an incentive to complete all courses. This could add up to nearly $2000
. A budget monitor will evaluate each girl’s budget, income and expenditures. This is designed to help our participants to learn financial responsibility.How can I apply?
All who wish to may participate in our Brave Beginnings Program.
Those interested may contact ATLAS for an application. We are not so concerned with past history as we are at their present mind set.
We would like our single moms to understand how God sees them:
“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine! For I am the Lord your God, The Holy One of Israel, your Savior; Since you are precious in My sight, Since you are honored and I love you," Isaiah 43:2-4
