  • Mission:
  • The mission of the M.O.M. Project and Dad Project is to offer a full-spectrum education and resource center program from the moment that families discover they are expecting, through the vital, formative early years of their children’s lives to the challenging teenage stage of life in order to help build healthy nurturing families, and strengthen the community assets as a whole.

  • History:
  • The Mothers On Mountains Project, a program of Bear Valley Community Healthcare District, has been in existence since 2001. It is the only parenting education program in Big Bear Valley, with the exception of the 52 week court ordered classes. We provide full spectrum parenting education and resource center services, to families with children ages 0-18 years. Big Bear is a small isolated mountain community in San Bernardino County with a population of approximately 20,000 year round residents. Prior to the inception of the MOM Project, due to Big Bear’s remote location, parents could only obtain the family support services we offer by traveling a minimum of 1 ½ hours off the mountain.
    The MOM Project has seen much success. We have consistently met not only our number goals, but our set goals for new/changed parenting skills for our clients. In July 2007, we were featured in the San Bernardino Community story book provided by First 5, as a model program. In January 2009, our DAD Project and the volunteer who helps run it, were recognized as one of the “10 Who Made a Difference” in the Big Bear Valley in 2008. Through the MOM Project, parents of all socioeconomic levels can receive free educational parenting information and programs. By offering proven techniques for teaching children developmentally appropriate parenting skills, the MOM Project has been able to provide services and document positive parenting behavior in all programs. We offer evidence and research based prenatal and parenting programs in the areas of parenting skills, child development, safety and health, and bonding and attachment. We have consistently reviewed lessons learned and implemented course corrections to best meet the needs of the community. Some examples of a direct result of this process is our DAD Project, meeting the needs of fathers in the community, and our newly implemented expansions of services to families with children ages 6-18. Our goal is to offer parenting classes and resource and referral services to all families that would like to receive them for whatever reason, whether mandated or out of the desire to improve and gain parenting skills. In order to reach this goal, we need to add in more staffing hours. As a parent or caregiver registers for our program, they will develop an individual learning plan, choosing the classes they wish and need to attend. Each participant will set goals, attend the chosen classes and when finished with their program, will have demonstrated five new or improved parenting skills. Participants entering the case management program will follow the same process of setting goals, meeting with the case manager and demonstrating meeting those goals.
