IMPORTANT NEW ORGANIZATION LAUNCHES TO STRENGTHEN MOTHERS AND CHILDREN IN PHOENIX, ARIZONA.
Urban Mommy partners with The George Washington Carver Museum and Cultural Center and opens programs to support women of color and their families in the greater phoenix area.
Phoenix, Arizona, September 1, 2018 – Today marks the official launch of the new website and local organization, Urban Mommy Inc., a national nonprofit that seeks to empower mothers to pursue economic independence by providing access to a network of resources, personal and professional development and access to free early childhood literacy programs. Through their joint partnership with the historic George Washington Carver Museum and Cultural center, Urban Mommy will provide invaluable community outreach events and programs to engage, motivate and support mothers and their children.
“Our programs and events are unique because they are mother-driven and mother-focused,” states Founder and Director Monique Joseph. “We believe that when you strengthen the mother, you elevate the family. With our history of advocacy, we believe we can create a new model to influence women of color living in urban communities and eradicate the cycle of poverty.”
The UM model has worked in other markets and with the right networks in place for mothers, families can realize their dreams and invest and give back in their own communities. Our three focus areas, healthcare, access to early childhood literacy and personal and professional development will aid in strengthening the family and influencing positive outcomes.
Events will be hosted at the Carver museum throughout the month. Mothers will have the opportunity to gain invaluable information from monthly workshops and take part in exciting events for the entire family.
