At the Presbyterian Women Funcheon this past month, attendees pooled their resources together to help support mothers living on Native American reservations in New Mexico who are part of the F.A.C.E., program, which provides educational and family support to young Navajo children and their mothers. Living in one of the poorest counties in the country, many of these women struggle to provide even the basics for their families and have no formal education to help them get out of the cycle of poverty in which they are stuck. In an effort to help them get on their feet, PW filled a basket with baby care materials worth over $600, as well as collected $575 to help fund G.E.D. tests for women enrolled in the program.
