CHILD AND YOUTH SPONSORSHIP
Sponsorship of a child will allow she/he to participate in our unique, holistic education programs year-round, and allow us to make a long-term investment in the lives of our children and families. M.O.M.I.E's After School and Safe Haven Summer Camp Programs provide a healthy and holistic foundation for our children to grow and gain the critical 21st Century Learning skills needed for long-time success.

"My children are thriving in their schools because of the additional academic support that they receive with M.O.M.I.E's in addition to being in a space that celebrates them as smart and beautiful African American people. This could not happen without the unending support of M.O.M.I.E's and their team."M.O.M.I.E's Parent
"M.O.M.I.E's is an exceptional organization with dynamic and committed staff playing a leading role in the development of at-risk youth. M.O.M.I.E's offers complimentary and supplementary curriculum that embodies life skills, cultural context, and human rights education, all of which are often underrespresented in the traditional mainstream curriculum of low-income schools. It is a family and community oriented organization that I will continue to support." Former IPVS Intern
"M.O.M.I.E's has taught me how to really embrace the community you are working in and the ways in which love is able to empower a community." After School Program Tutor
"My daughter was seven years old when she enrolled in the After School Program at M.O.M.I.E’s TLC. Now, she is a freshman at Duke Ellington School for the Arts. As a single-parent household, my family has faced hard challenges. Finding work and affordable housing wasn’t always so easy, and I work long hours. Without M.O.M.I.E’s safe, holistic and consistent presence in our lives, I know my daughter would not be where she is right now. M.O.M.I.E’s has been there every step of the way: M.O.M.I.E's helped us to navigate the stressful and complicated process of applying to middle and high schools; M.O.M.I.E’s supported her academics through one-on-one tutoring; and, most importantly, M.O.M.I.E’s has allowed my daughter to cultivate powerful relationships with caring adults and other youth and children. In 2010, my daughter even represented M.O.M.I.E’s at the White House by receiving an award from First Lady Michelle Obama!" M.O.M.I.E's Parent
"My family and I are personal witnesses as to how M.O.M.I.E's TLC believes in a holistic and genuine commitment to children, families and community. I have seen how they are investing in our youth to not only build themselves into healthy, intelligent beings but as servants to our community..." M.O.M.I.E's Grandparent
