Mothers on the Rise (MOR) serves mother-baby pairs transitioning from the Indiana Women’s Prison Leath Unit to their home community. The MOR team and partners help mothers navigate their home community and work to build a mother’s capacity to flourish. The program establishes an individualized, coordinated system of care for each mother residing in the nursery unit.
