Volunteering with My Mother's Voice has given me so much more than I've been able to give. I have stopped gliding through life as if each day is a given. When I am able to work with a student who is so grateful for an hour of tutoring, some limited individual attention, I am more attentive to what is truly meaningful in a day. I am responsible for building life-long skills in a young person who has not had this opportunity before. There is tremendous joy is seeing the recognition in those young faces when I just show up. And when I am filling up "weekend packs" of food to send home so that they don't show up at school hungry on a Monday morning, I am completely grateful for the abundance I have had in my life. Working with this great team of staff and volunteers give me enormous hope and energy to keep spreading the word to others that we are making a difference.

This energetic group brings such passion to their work with teen parents and their babies, and other single moms that it's easy to connect with their mission. They are very solution based, and they keep connected with every parent, baby, and child so that you can see the results. My Mother's Voice gives the necessities so that no baby or mom goes hungry or doesn't have a crib or bed, but they make sure that those being helped are making the changes necessary to be self-sufficient and productive. They mentor and keep student parents in school and on to college and work. It's a joyous effort that keeps the us feeling like family and wanting to give back to others as we all see the success.
