History

Nursing Mom

The Trumbull Memorial Hospital Foundation and March of Dimes first funded the Mentoring Mother’s Project in 1996-1997. The program is modeled after the successful Parent Assistance Service System (PASS) of the Lake County General Health District. Since then, the grant was renewed for nine consecutive years 1996-2004 with Community Solutions, Rebecca Williams Community Center; other funding sources are being sought for its continuance in Trumbull County and expansion to Franklin and Mahoning Counties.
