Our programs have positively impacted the lives of more than 6,000 mothers and their children, and we cherish each and every one of our families as they progress toward full, loving and rewarding futures. We are proud to say that Casa Teresa is a family home, much like yours and mine. Our doors and our hearts remain open. We cheer their graduations, their new jobs, their new homes and share in their joy.
Located on the EMS campus, the Dr. James Pugh Alumni Resource Center offers positive self-sufficiency resources that empower past residents and their children. The facility is equipped with computer lab to assist with career and education advancement, and we also provide meeting and child play space for past residents to reconnect with Casa Teresa. Classes and workshops include High School Equivalency Exam preparation, resume building, computer training, interview training, office etiquette, and more, with babysitters provided for each session. In recent years, we have made great strides in helping residents further their education and qualify for and secure jobs that pay more than minimum wage.
Beyond encouraging career and educational growth, we also support our mothers as they continue to make healthy choices for themselves and their families. To this end, we provide classes and workshops on healthy relationships, parenting, and relapse recovery, as well as individual case management.
