GOL Celebrates 30 Years of Service To Montgomery

MONTGOMERY, AL – Gift of Life Foundation (GOL) is celebrating 30 years of service to Montgomery families with a birthday party on March 14, 2018 from 1:30-3 p.m. at the Gift of Life office located at 1348 Carmichael Way.

Since 1988, GOL has been working to decrease infant mortality in Montgomery County through programs that empower women to reduce the challenges they face that threaten their health and prevent a healthy birth outcome. It accomplishes this through four programs: Parents as Teachers, Nurse Family Partnership, Mobile Family Coaching and Fathers in Action. GOL’s programs help first-time or already parenting moms and dads develop effective parenting skills, reduce risk factors for child abuse and neglect, address the physical, social and emotion health of mom and baby, and provide vital connection to community resources that help them increase self-sufficiency.

The festivities will include proclamations presented by the City of Montgomery and County Commission, reflections on the Gift of Life’s impact on the lives of families by current and former families, and community agencies and local health providers who have partnered with Gift of Life to further its mission to reduce infant mortality. The event will culminate with a cake cutting. For more information, contact Mona Davis at (334) 273-7800.
