They are very flexible and understand that everyone has a complicated life and they will not be able to volunteer all the time. Also every time I have been there they know exactly where they need me to help the most.

I joined Mommies Matter as a volunteer about a year ago. This organization is made up of an amazing group of caring people who provide support, both emotional and financial, to single moms who make the brave decision to choose life. I learn so much from the speakers, moms, volunteers and staff at the enrichment group meetings. These meetings are all about learning and growing from one another's life experiences.

As a volunteer with Mommies Matter for a year now I am constantly amazed by the dedication and commitment of the organizers and staff. Mommies Matter provides not only physical help, but much more importantly a network of caring individuals to walk alongside young single moms trying to raise their children in this challenging world.

I have been a volunteer with Mommies Matter for over a year. I have helped administratively and more recently in the role of hosting baby showers! I have experience with several non-profits in a volunteer capacity and would rate Mommies Matter as top notch! The love, patience and devotion that they share with their clients is remarkable - the difference made is palpable. I look forward to continuing my relationship with Mommies Matter for years to come to help mom's in need know just how much they and their babies are loved.

I have been affiliated with Mommies Matter since the beginning! I was drawn to this organization as a single mother, who had lots of family support and it was still a very hard job! I couldn't imagine trying to parent and keep a family together without help. I saw the need for the loving support offered by Mommies Matter as well as the hand-up attitude!

I am a volunteer for mommies matter, I am in the role of “support sister”. Since I work full time and am myself a full time mother to 3 babies I choose to be a support sister. A support sister writes to women giving them words of encouragement and other kind notes. Since they also collect diapers for the mothers I have donated to that cause also. Mommies matter does great things to help empower women!!

Mommies Matter is a loving, non judgmental, sincere organization that cares about the life of the unborn, but beyond that, they care about the life of the mother. They make the impossible possible with the Allies they provide these women to walk through this challenging time with. They provide donations for any needs, they help with work, housing, school, anything a mother would need help with. It takes a village to raise a child, and if a women finds herself without a village, Mommies Matter fills that void.

For years I have supported the pro-life movement, but it always weighed heavily on my heart there were not more solutions for women who made the courageous decision not to end a baby's life. Whether a young women decides to keep her baby or offer it for adoption, still takes dedication and perseverance to give life to these little miracles. A few years ago, I began volunteering during weekly enrichment sessions - a time when speakers would come to offer these women coaching and life lessons ranging from financial to parenting topics. The volunteers would feed and play with the babies and children so these courageous women could have time to focus on making their lives more independent and successful going forward. Many of these women have had past lives that were unbelievably sad. But, the Mommies Matter program gives them the skills and tools to dramatically change their lives - as long as they have the determination to follow through. The happiness that I have seen in these women's faces, once they began to succeed and take control of their lives is overwhelming. I am so blessed to have been a part of Mommies Matter and to see how every little gesture of human kindness has the ability to turn someone's life around.

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!
