Mommas Village

It Takes A Village

Our Mission

Mommas Village is a group of passionate professionals who have a vested interest in helping young mothers and young girls achieve their full potential. We work with teen girls to improve their self esteem, enrich their lives through mentoring and set them on a successful path early in life. We also work with young moms to help them gain the necessary skills they need for parenting and continue to improve their lives and reach their goals. Often times when young girls and moms have difficulties they become discouraged and begin to self doubt not only their potential but also their self-worth.

We are here to support them and provide the tools they need to let them know they can succeed in anything they put their minds and effort into in life. We offer patience, assistance, resources and mentoring to rejuvenate their spirits and ambition for greatness. With our help their mental, physical, and emotional health will improve, as well as vocational, educational, and professional futures.
