2019 Year in review at Emerge Mothers Academy

As we come to the end of 2019, Emerge Mothers Academy is extremely thankful for the donors and volunteers who have come alongside our mission to equip single mothers to emerge as confident women and caring moms. 
 
This year Emerge Mothers Academy has served  107 moms (and their 247 kids) through clinical social work, parenting classes, work preparation, and financial literacy training. Thanks to your support, we were also able to award $5560 in entrepreneurial grants. 
 

As we look to 2020 with excitement, Emerge Mothers Academy will open a new permanent location at the Center for Belonging. Our new location will be a safe and convenient place for single moms to access our services.

But here’s the truth—we CANNOT open our new permanent location without you.

Emerge Mothers Academy needs to raise $10,000 to secure our spot at the Center of Belonging. Will you invest in the future of Emerge Mothers Academy and help us serve more single mothers (and their children)? TODAY your donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar!

Enjoy this look back on the year at Emerge Mothers Academy.

A special note to our Emerge moms; Your choice to step forward and ask for help is courageous and inspires everyone at Emerge Mothers Academy. We see your desire to make positive choices for yourselves and your family. You are strong and capable of emerging a strong mom and confident women.

What better way to encourage a mom than give her updated family photos for Mother’s Day! Each Spring, Emerge Mothers Academy holds a photoshoot for our moms. Our donors gifted each family a large canvas! 2019 was our biggest turnout for family photos and we are excited to continue to grow this event!

Health & wellness is one of the core values of Emerge Mothers Academy. Each year we host a Wellness Expo to benefit our services. In 2019, we hosted the event at ModernWell with local wellness vendors and an incredible panel that spoke on mental, physical, and spiritual wellness.
