About the Young Moms' Self-Sufficiency Program:
The Young Moms' Self-Sufficiency Program (YMSSP) provides opportunities for young mothers to overcome the many, complex barriers to self-sufficiency and decrease the possibility of abuse and neglect. It helps women to identify realistic academic and employment goals, improve the health and nutrition of family members, increase a personal sense of competence and well-being, and foster a healthy relationship between both parents and children.
