Women's Connections Partners with Wilson Commencement Park

As part of its partnership with Wilson Commencement Park (“WCP”) and its residents, the
Women’s Connections Committee with GRAWA would like to invite our members to a discussion on Parenting by parenting expert Notoya Green. This will be the conclusion to what has been a summer filled with mentoring and educational programming as part of the Summer 2016 WCP-GRAWA Mentoring Boot Camp.
 
In 1991, WCP was established to help low-income, single-parent families transition from public assistance to financial independence and personal self-sufficiency. WCP is a self-contained “community” where residents can live for 24 months in attractive and affordable housing and receive comprehensive care management, educational and life skills support, career development assistance, and eventual placement in “next step” permanent housing.

Notoya Green is a parenting expert currently residing in New York City with her triplets. Ms. Green will be speaking about attachment theory and how children thrive, socially and intellectually, when they feel loved, supported and protected by their mother; childhood adversity and how it impacts and affects mental health both in childhood and adulthood; the use of corporal punishment or other forms of harsh parenting; boyfriends, co-habitation and sexual abuse; how to find appropriate babysitters for children; and how to handle school success, including the need for early intervention.
 
The evening starts at 5:30 with a half hour of social gathering at WCP on 251 Joseph Avenue, following by Ms. Green’s presentation at 6:00, and will conclude with a Graduation ceremony for the members of the WCP-GRAWA Mentoring Boot Camp. Please join us in welcoming Ms.Green back to Rochester, and helping to recognize the WCP residents who have successfully completed the Summer 2016 Mentoring Boot Camp.
