THE MISSION OF THE M.O.B.B.
The mission of Mothers of Black/ Brown Babies is to support new and veteran mothers of Black and Brown children in
a variety of ways that nourish their mind thorough bringing educational workshops
and forums to their communities, spirit through networking and camaraderie as
well as the overall health of their families through emotional support.
M.O.B.B. was established to educate and support, as well as to create a network of support for pregnant and new mothers. M.O.B.B. IS COMMUNITY MINDED, CENTERED, FOCUSED AND OPERATED
HOW WE M.O.B.B.
This program strives to bring the education to the people in their communities. Conference and meeting locations vary from community centers, religious institutions, shelters, halfway houses and public parks. One-topic workshops are held upon request.
M.O.B.B.'s emergency food program Eat Healthy is for families who have been denied government assistance or have been discontinued from those benefits because of slight increase in income. M.O.B.B. celebrates any type of elevation, and we believe that because one has made progress in one area that they should not be hindered in others. This program is for the families who fall in between- the family that is not economically abundant, but not economically destitute. It is understood that there are few to no programs out there for this type of family. Eat Healthy provides food packages consisting of wholistic products, and on some occasion will include additional items such as new recipes, hygiene products and vitamins.
MOBILE CLOTHES CLOSET
In conjunction with the FTP Movement's Feed The People Program, the Mobile Clothes Closet operates every Sunday. Additional days are scheduled through community outreach in accordance with the current need. This program is designed for those without the funds or transportation to access the various stationary clothes closets throughout the metropolitan area. Individuals in need are able to access new and used clothing for themselves and their family as well as personal hygiene kits.
