On March 30, KYCC’s Clinical Services, the Prevention & Aftercare and Partnerships for Families held a joint event where Korean moms were able to take time away from their regular responsibilities and take care of themselves.

At the event—”Mom’s Self-Care Group”—the mothers participated in art activities and were treated to nail art using a variety of colors, stickers, and gemstones. The PFF staff volunteered to provide childcare for the five children that had come.

“It’s important for moms to take care of themselves because self-care is good for their physical and emotional health,” says KYCC Asian Pacific Islander Partnership for Families (API PFF) Program Coordinator Rumee Chung. “Our participants also reported that they tend to better connect with their kids when they are happy and full of energy.”
