Project CRADLE Care
Promoting the Welfare of Women
This prenatal education and resource program seeks to improve pregnancy outcomes in high-risk communities by increasing the number of women of childbearing age who receive adequate prenatal education and prenatal care and who better understand proper infant care and child development. The goal of the project is to provide a wealth of information, resources, and tools for women of childbearing age to help ensure a healthy baby.
Improvement of Youth
The Youth Symposium is designed to highlight some of the prevalent concerns that negatively impact youth such as drugs, teen violence, abuse, low self esteem, suicide, teen pregnancy, etc.
Enhance the Community
African american children and women have the lowest proficiency in swimming especially in urban areas like Detroit which increases the likelihood of drowning. To help eliminate this barrier, RSF provides swim lesson scholarships every year.
