Project ME: Empowering Women in Need
Project ME (Mind Empowerment) is an educational program hosted at Jane Addams Place, an emergency shelter for women and children. Nurses from various departments of the Hospital at the University of Pennsylvania (HUP) conduct an educational series on a variety of topics for the mothers who reside at the shelter. Topics include caring for a baby, flu prevention and more. Every eight-to-10 weeks a new session starts, and at the end, the women receive a "graduation" certificate — along with a sense of accomplishment and self-worth.
