Why We Exist

Young moms feel seen, heard, and valued when they come to New Moms. They feel confident that they can open doors for their family, equipped with the skills and supports necessary to make and achieve their goals. They come seeking safe homes, stable work, and parenting support.

New Moms exists to make these dreams a reality.

Poverty can be traumatic and feel suffocating. It can result in toxic stress. It can choke families of hope, and communities of their potential. Over 90% of the young families New Moms serve have experienced poverty, and want to write a new story for their future. 

We believe in the strength, skills, and potential of all families and communities to set and achieve their goals.

Guided by our mission, to share the love of God by surrounding young moms and their children with everything they need to transform their lives, New Moms takes a 2-Generation approach to transformation that puts families in control of their goals and futures. We challenge systemic barriers that inhibit success, providing support and services that help stabilize families right now and alleviate the effects of toxic stress. Our coaches partner with young moms, who can exhale a bit, and pursue a pathway to opportunity for their families, one where poverty does not write their story: they do.
