1st Source Bank has donated $2,000 to the Youth Services Bureau of St. Joseph County for its Young Moms' Self-Sufficiency Program. Mary Chmiel, 1st Source Senior Vice President, presented the donation to Bonnie Strycker, Executive Director of the Youth Services Bureau.
The Young Moms' Self-Sufficiency Program serves at-risk, pregnant or parenting young women ages 16-24 and their children. The young women will identify short and long-term goals and will have regularly scheduled home visits by a case manager to monitor their progress and customize any needed services. Monthly educational group activities will also be held to increase the participants' knowledge of parenting and relevant self-sufficiency topics.
