Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Family Services, Human Services

Mission: Mother To Mother collects new and gently used baby items and distributes these items to needy families in Tennessee.  We work with hospitals and local social service agencies to enable us to reach a large percentage of the needy population.  Our main initiative right now is Project Safe Sleep.  We aim to lower the infant mortality rate in TN, working on the health and well being of infants in Middle Tennessee.

Geographic areas served: Tennessee

Programs: Our Gift Bag Program is a bag of essentials: diapers, wipes, hats, booties, blankets, outfits, pacifiers, and bibs.  We started this program at Nashville General Hospital when we discovered that the hospital did not have the sponsorship to provide these items to their clientel.  The patients at General are generally all needy and did not have these items for their babies.

I just ran across Mother To Mother on the internet and am so excited that we have such a much needed service. We provide formula for low income babies- but there is nowhere to get diapers.

I am a single mom who wants to provide for my baby but don't have the money to buy all the supplies that I need. MTM helped get me a safe place for my daughter to sleep and I will always be grateful to them

I just found this organization and am thrilled to know that it is in Middle TN. After budget cuts threaten the infant mortality program in TN, it is comforting to see that there are other options to help our most vulnerable people.

I manage a suntrust bank branch and my branch volunteered one evening for Mother To Mother. We all went to the warehouse and had an assembly line to stuff the gift bags that Mother To Mother distributes to babies.

Although I only helped with unloading car seats - it was my first exposure to this wonderful organization. I will continue to work with them in the future.

I enjoyed my work at Mother To Mother! I helped distribute diapers, clothing, car seats, and cribs to numerous Nashville organizations. It was so rewarding to see the faces on the families who were receiving the items and know that we were making a difference.

This is a spectacular charity that meets an urgent need in the Nashville, TN area. Countless hours have been spent organizing and distributing items to new mothers in need. Mother to Mother provides everything from clothes to strollers for mothers struggling to provide for their newborns.

Mother-to-Mother provides all kinds of much needed items from diapers to strollers to the women living in our domestic violence shelter with infants. They do WONDERFUL work and we are so fortunate to have them helping us gain the materials necessary to the moms in our shelter.

The patients are so happy and thankful that we are affilitated with such a wonderful organization. Thank you Janie for all that you do for all. ADH

I've been a volunteer for Mother to Mother for three years, and I've been lucky to see the difference it makes firsthand. Most of my work is logistical- helping to organize and transport the sheer number of car seats, cribs, and clothing; however, the real fun is seeing the looks on people's faces when they receive things that every baby needs...but their family can't afford. Knowing that children are safer in their own car seats, sleeping in their own cribs, and having adequate clothing, especially in the cold months, makes volunteering very rewarding.
