Hi! I’m Cynthia Ryant, Your NAC Coordinator
I provide information and resources on services to residents in Southwest Philadelphia. Resources for housing, food distribution sites, health Information and neighborhood safety and beautification. I help inform the community on upcoming developments within the neighborhood.
Here is information you may be able to use:
Community Action Network / Fathers Work Group
Supporting women caring for themselves and their children and accessing the services available will improve the health and well-being of the mothers and their children.
If both parents are still together doing the pregnancy of their unborn child, enhancing the father’s role in the family will result in more fathers playing an active role in the mother and child’s life.
Father Workshop is working with the men and teaching them how to care and nurture the mother to be. Father and daughter dance is now going on 12 years.
Help for Postpartum Depression (PPD)
Did you know that there’s not much talk anymore or you may be hearing less about women with postpartum depression? The transition to becoming a new mother can be extremely confusing, frightening, and lonely.
Some mothers with PPD have difficulty getting the help they need. If you know someone who is struggling with PPD reach out to https://postpartumstress.com/
