Year in Review

Here at New Moms, 2018 was a big year for us.

As we looked back on 35 years of creating strong families, we marveled at how far hope and possibility have taken us. Here are some highlights from last year:

  • We served 343 moms and 456 children
  • We logged 4,727 hours of volunteer support
  • Participants in our 16 week Job Training program experienced an average 2.3 grade level improvement in both math and science between program entry and exit.
  • 81% of young moms retained employment for 12+ months. Compared to the national median of 39%.
I am so grateful for all of the people who invest themselves into this transforming work – the donors, volunteers, staff, and families – who make these stories possible every day. I hope you’ll join us over on the New Moms website to check out our full Annual Report. Click here or on the picture above.
