My experience with Mommies Matter has been one of revelation and witnessing of blessings. The team truly puts actions behind their words as selfless giving isn't just an act of kindness it becomes a bold mission of expressive love. God bless the MM team. Truly a pleasure to work with.

As a volunteer with this organization, I am consistently impressed with the intense resolve to meet the needs of struggling moms with dignity and respect. In addition, Mommies Matters' holistic approach to addressing the material needs, spiritual needs and emotional well-being of the mom they support, is a privilege to be part of.

I have been volunteering with this organization since January. I have found it to be very altruistic. The clients are treated with great respect. The volunteers are listened to and aided in their duties to aid the single mothers and their children. I recommend this organization to those single mothers needing help and to people who wish to help mothers who choose to keep their babies.

Mommies Matter fills a needed void in Central Ohio among non-profits by accompanying woman who have chosen to give birth to their chid(ren) to grow into fine women, wonderful mothers, and contributing members of society. Often, the women who are connected with MM have been through trauma in their lives, have made the brave decision to parent, but are facing life as an unmarried woman and mother by themselves. MM accompanies these women as their equals, not as a saviour, to walk with them on their journey to continue to grow as woman and mothers by developing their life and family skills; learning new skills toward stable employment; finding a safe and healthy peer community; being partnered with an experienced mother as an ally companion; being connected with people, experiences, and resources to help them heal from past traumas; and the support of the wider Mommies Matter community parters as a kind of extended family to step in and assist with emergency situations (when in line with policy) for transportation assistance, living arrangements, health need, etc.. Mommies Matter seeks to help each woman to know deeply her human dignity as a woman and mother and to cultivate the fullness of life in her whole person - body, mind, spiritual/religious needs.

Our Enrichment gatherings give the women of Mommies Matter a wonderful sense of community. It offers a safe space of trust for these women who have experienced all levels of trauma. It is always such an inspiring evening for both volunteers and clients.

Mommies Matter is doing amazing and important work in Columbus, Ohio. I hosted a baby shower for a mother through them. They are on the ground providing emotional and financial support to mothers facing crisis pregnancies, which is desperately needed. I am so grateful for what they do!
