MOTHERWOMAN CHANGES LIVES BY:
SUPPORTING AND EMPOWERING MOTHERS
“MotherWoman empowered me to keep on going, to live my life the best I could each day, and to be present for my son. Through the support group, I learned I was not alone in my struggles. I am part of a community of women who are still fighting isolation, battling anxiety, and facing mountains of unrealistic expectations because our society does not support mothers or families.” - Elizabeth, support group attendee
YOUR GIFT WILL ensure that support groups are available to strengthen thousands of diverse mothers in Western MA. It will also ensure that more women are able to receive a scholarship to take our Group Facilitator Training.
BUILDING COMMUNITY SAFETY NETS FOR ALL MOTHERS
“MotherWoman’s leadership has equipped the Franklin County Coalition of professionals who serve mothers to make positive changes in our community that will benefit mothers and families for years to come.”
- Linda Jablonski, RN
YOUR GIFT WILL help build Perinatal Support Coalitions in more communities. Tens of thousands of MA mothers and families will get the help they need, when they need it.
IMPACTING FAMILY POLICY
"My kid was really sick and even though I don't have any paid sick time at work I had to stay home with her. When I called in to work my boss said, 'you're fired'. Are they allowed to do that?" - Karen, support group attendee
YOUR GIFT will help change family policies so that working parents are not forced to choose between the jobs they need and the families they love.
When mothers are strong and supported, families and communities thrive. Make this vision a reality in Western MA!
