Young Mothers

Roca is one of the only organizations in the country working with a forgotten group of young mothers who are traumatized victims of abuse and neglect. To break the cycle for their children, we believe that stabilizing the mother is the first step in stabilizing the family. Our nationally recognized, four-year behavioral health intervention model teaches them the skills they need to learn to choose to live and set their children up for success.
