What We Do

We get to know you and the needs of your family.
We then send referrals to community organizations and programs and help you navigate resources.  Mom Starts Here will provide coaching and parent education, along with supplying needed baby items and diapers. We stand with you every step of the way and help you plan for the future.

Step 1

Let us know how we can help by completing an application under the Get Started Tab. A Client Coordinator will review the application with you and discuss how we can help meet your needs.

Step 2

You will be enrolled in programs to help meet the needs of you and your baby. We provide a monthly diaper supply for each child, baby items including clothing, car seats, and pack n plays (with mattresses), parent education and support, personalized coaching, and resource navigation. Diaper Program is currently at capacity. 

Step 3

We continue to be a resource for you and your family along your parenting journey. Our goal is to ensure that you have what you need for your baby and help you grow as an individual and as a parent. As your circumstances change Mom Starts Here will continue to advise and empower you as you face your future with hope.

Marissa’s Story

I was 17 years old on that May morning where I woke up feeling “different” in my heart and in my gut. What happened next was something that we could’ve never expected. A test reading “pregnant”. Could that be right? At 17 and 18 years old we were faced with the biggest decision of our lives but in our hearts, we knew instantly what to do. There is no “perfect time” to have a baby. Support varied- we had people who were as passionate and committed to this baby as we were and others who wanted nothing to do with us or our decision. But at the end of the day that was exactly what it was. Our decision. Even on our worst day and our longest night, I don’t wish for a second we had chosen differently. Something happens to you when you become a mother. A bond and sense of selflessness are created and nothing else truly matters. We have since gotten married, bought a house, found careers, and welcomed our second child. Getting pregnant at any age is a journey, and yours is just beginning. Mom Starts Here is an organization that helps young mothers who need empowerment and support in their choices, but the choice is always yours.
