Safia and her Daughter have the Space and Support to Thrive


Safia, a 15 year old honor roll student and new mother, is part of our Mother and Child program – a residential program for young mothers in foster care.  The program houses adolescent mothers and their infants in a dedicated building in the Bronx, and 24/7 Foundling staff members provide childcare, parenting education, and holistic supports so mothers can finish their education, pursue career goals, learn parenting and life skills, and ultimately independently support their families.

Safia is happy to now be living in an apartment that feels like home, and to have the support of The Foundling’s staff as she completes high school while parenting her growing child.  “I’m comfortable that my baby can grow up and as she grows, she’s in a safe, clean place,” Dixon said.
