What We Do
Samara’s Village is the first and only nonprofit (501(c)3) of its kind in Brunswick County with a mission to equip, educate and empower at risk adolescent parents to raise healthy babies and families. We do this by providing 3 key services: 1. specialized educational interventions, 2. services directed at supporting the family’s immediate needs, and 3. coordination with available resources – all free of charge. Our vision is is building a strong community, one child at a time.
