SisterFriends Detroit is a part of the Birthing Project USA network. Created by Kathryn Hall-Trujillo, the Birthing Project model of providing volunteer SisterFriend mentors to pregnant moms is the only prenatal care access model created by a woman of color with women of color in mind. It is a grassroots community volunteer movement that helps moms access existing local services and grows community leaders. There are over 100 Birthing Projects in the
United States and abroad.
SisterFriends Detroit is the first project created to serve an entire city. SisterFriends Detroit is a volunteer effort to support healthier moms and babies. SisterFriends Detroit provides support to pregnant moms, and their families until their baby’s first birthday. SisterFriends Detroit is not a program. Volunteer SisterFriends connect pregnant moms and families to existing programs and resources – and to each other. Many SisterFriend and Little Sister relationships continue well beyond baby’s first birthday. Once a SisterFriend always a SisterFriend!
Thank you for all that you do in District 6.
