Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers and grandmothers everywhere!
Mothers are such an essential part of our development as babies and children, but we really appreciate their wisdom and generosity as we mature into adults. Thank you for the continuous and often thankless job of supporting, caring, giving, and sacrificing that mothers provide year after year. The mothers at Emma House are continuing to grow and learn the fundamental skills needed to eventually transition and to thrive in community with their baby. Thanks to the support from our dedicated staff Emma House community partners and donors, we can provide each mother with nutritious meals, baby essentials, life skills classes and 24-hour and wrap-around trauma informed supports for them and for their baby, as they continue to blossom into confident, equipped moms who inspire us each day with their gains and great love for their babies.
Thanks to the support of our donors and community partners we are welcoming three new mothers to Emma House! We are preparing to accommodate two new mothers and their babies as well as one expectant mom-to-be. We are excited to welcome them into the Emma House family. Our intake process is especially careful and mindful during these times to ensure that all mother’s and babies will be safe while being fully supported by our dedicated and experienced staff. We are thrilled to have Emma House full of mothers and babies with all the joy and community that will result from their arrival.
Mother’s Day Donations
We would also like to thank a few of our recent generous supporters for their donations to the mothers and babies of Emma House, as they have chosen us as the recipients of their campaigns for Mother’s Day.
