BENEFITING: MOTHERS HELPING MOTHERS INC
EVENT DATE: Aug 08, 2011
Mothers Helping Mothers Inc is a 501c3 non-profit organization that was founded in 2009. Created from a lack of existing services for teen moms and pregnant teens, we wanted to give teen moms a positive place where they felt loved instead of judged.
We offer a weekly life skills program for teen mothers and pregnant teens at our 3 locations throughout Columbus and Franklin County. Mothers helping Mothers Inc encourages setting educational and career goals for each teen mom that we work with and walks beside her to accomplish her goals as well as to provide a safe place of encouragement, hope and support through mentors and their fellow community of teenage mothers. Mothers Helping Mothers Inc encourages independence through teaching life skill classes such as; budgeting, money management, job interviewing skills, resume building, cooking, self defense, nutrition, stress and anger management, relationship workshops and so much more. Mothers Helping Mothers Inc is not only changing lives in the world of teen moms, it is also changing the community. The impact of a girl who will not stay on welfare throughout her lifetime and who is going to give her and her child a brighter future leads to a better economy and society.
