Late 2015, the Maurer Foundation partnered with New Hour for Women and Children of Long Island to bring our life saving message to the women they serve. New Hour is dedicated to supporting women on Long Island during and after incarceration, and to empowering parents, children and families in our community. The staff of New Hour provides community re-entry programming at the Riverhead Correctional Facility. The Maurer Foundation educators have presented their breast health program to the participants of New Hour’s health and wellness group, as well as their parenting group. Our program encourages women to feel empowered over their own bodies and health, so that they can be a support to their families for years to come. We proudly look forward to continuing this partnership, with more programs scheduled for 2016.
