The Next Step in Services for Gladney
FORT WORTH, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Gladney Center for Adoption is excited to announce the launch of our newest program for birthmothers — Next Steps. Next Steps was developed to help birthmothers transition back into the “real world” after delivery — armed with knowledge, education, practical tools, and confidence to take on the world with a renewed and healthy perspective by focusing on the whole person — mind, body and spirit. It is Gladney’s goal for birthmothers to leave us well-equipped to take on new opportunities. Beth Cox, Caseworker for Next Steps, says, “Next Steps teaches girls how to dream, and even more importantly, how to achieve their dreams. It is about teaching women how to empower themselves.”
While working with Gladney, birthmothers are learning about nutrition, cooking, life skills, developing critical thinking skills, team work, trust and the importance of self-respect. Next Steps is about continuing the progress birthmothers make during their time at Gladney. “We will continue to help support our clients’ efforts and help them tap into community resources such as career development, mentoring programs, skills assessment and education,” says Frank Garrott, President of the Gladney Center for Adoption…
Personally, I feel empowered by the thought of running Dame Edna out of business. Gladney had better think about what they want.
