About Care Like a Mother

This year we invite you to CARE like a Mother and support Motherful's 2023 Mother's Day campaign.

We are raising $100,000 for this Mother's month.

$50,000 will go directly to organizational operations and $50,000 will go towards direct cash support for single mothers in the form of grants for emergencies. Our emergency fund grants and direct giving campaigns have supported single mothers in the past 4 years with over $100,000 in direct giving (over 1/4 of our total budget!)

A letter from our Board President:

Dear Friend:

When Motherful was founded four years ago, our goal was to have a place where single mother families could come and feel cared for, to be nurtured emotionally, spiritually, and physically.  We wanted single mothers to feel seen, heard, understood, and valued.  We wanted to provide them a safe place to come and not be judged or maligned.  We wanted their children to have a place where they could come and be children, where they could run, play, laugh, and not worry about the world outside for a little while.  We wanted our families to feel like they had a family that they could rely on at any time, that there was a support system that was always going to be there for them and have their back.  

Motherful has accomplished that, and more.  In the last four years, we’ve opened our Food Pantry, Community Garden, Resource Garage, and have given over $100,000 in cash to single mothers.  We’ve established our Emergency Fund Grant Program which provides single mothers with cash payments to take care of emergency expenses, such as utility disconnections, car repairs, prescription/medical expenses, and preventing evictions.  We are also starting to plan for the development of our Motherful Co-Housing village, where we will give our families the opportunity to live together in community in sustainable and energy efficient homes and have everything they need on-site to manage their lives better, such as a laundromat, community center, cafeteria, and a day care center.  Single Mothers deserve to pursue their dreams and goals outside of raising their children, and our co-housing village will allow them to do just that.  

All of these wins would not be possible without the support of generous people like you.  With the support of donors, supporters, sponsors, partners, and friends, Motherful has been able to achieve some amazing and miraculous things.  We are launching our Care Like A Mother campaign to raise $100,000 so we can continue to honor our mission of nurturing and supporting single mother families and helping our collective flourish and thrive.

Mothers move the world.  They are the beginning of all life.  Without mothers, none of us would be here.  They are the very cradle of civilization.  Join us in uplifting the selfless, tireless work of mothers who are doing it by themselves.  They deserve to know that they truly are not alone.  They deserve to know that they are loved.  They deserve to know that we care about them.  Please, Care Like A Mother and donate to Motherful today.  

With Love and Gratitude,

Chere R. Hampton

President, Board of Directors
