MY MOTHERS VOICE
July 20, 2009

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.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

making positive change in young people's lives so that a path was actually altered to one of success, growth, giving, and independence. They don't give up on these young people and they help them work their individual plan for life.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

find more donors so that we could make even more change in our communities and tell people about this rewarding work.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the ability to feel really useful, to experience the success of the mission and not just an occasional office worker or a one-time donor. I could actually see and feel that I was making a difference.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

all ages, ethnicity, backgrounds, but all enthusiastic and hard-working. There is a genuine sense of love, pride, and joy in this organization. You can't wait to get started again the next morning, and you are always thinking of a new solution to help.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

execute its long range plan which is extraordinary, but still keep to the mission of making significant changes to each life they touch. They could do more and better, but I don't see them ever losing their focus.

Ways to make it better...

they had more infrastructure (more office space), more technology (laptops and additional software) to be more efficient and help more clients.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

lack of funds, office space, and a retail outlet. This keeps them from expanding and opening up some additional supportive programs.

One thing I'd also say is that...

if more people could get involved with My Mother's Voice, and give if they can't geographically be there, we could spread to begin improving the family, education, and jobs while lowering crime, addiction, and abuse.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & I made sure that teen moms had adequate necessities to care for themselves and their babies. I also helped them with their school assignments so that they didn't fall behind.
