Mother hunger is a new term released by psychologist Kelly MC Daniel. She is the author of Mother Hunger which discusses the three pillars a girl needs from her mother - nurturing, guidance, and protection. In addition to nurturing, we found that during this time our girls need mental strength to bounce back from the pandemic that has plagued us all.
We formed a team of amazing “Big Sisters” to help our 360 club aka Goal Girls do just that by interacting with them four times a week. This year sessions are focused on Mindset Matters by implementing our 4 E’s.
