ENGLEWOOD — Katie Klain, facilitator at The Glen at St. Joseph, recently spoke to the Northmont Rotary about the mission of The Glen.

It is a residential, life-changing campus for single mothers with young children and was made for mothers who want to improve their lives. While they live at The Glen, mothers work toward earning a certificate or a degree.

The Glen program provides resources, tools, and support from people who truly care about mothers and children’s well-being and growth.

As a resident of the Glen, single mothers have a place to develop their resources. A Life Coach helps mothers determine their focus so they can build skills and become the person they want to be. Mothers get support to –

• Identify your Life Values

• Develop your career path and your plan to follow

• Become the parent you want to be

• Focus on your own education

• Manage your money

• Make better decisions

• Grow spiritually

Mothers and their child are of primary importance while at the Glen. To help them feel safe and reduce worry, the Glen provides –

• Two bedroom furnished apartments with rent based on your income

• Shared family and play areas

• Back porch with fenced back yard playground

• Special family events throughout the year

• Training rooms for Glen Curriculum

• Access to computers and printers

• High quality on-campus child care

• Non-denominational chapel

When a mother and her child comes to live at the Glen, she has a high-quality early learning center for her children just across the parking lot.

• Private 5-Star Early Learning Center (ELC) on the campus

• High teacher-to-child ratio for each infant, toddler and pre-school classroom

• ELC tuition co-pay based on your income

• Regular one-to-one parent-child conferences

• Individualized lesson plan for each child – 6 weeks through pre-school age

• Nationally recognized Highscope curriculum
