What We Do

We get to know you and your needs as a mother, and help you connect with organizations that can meet them.  Mom Starts Here will provide coaching and resource navigation, 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 intake form, and one of our Mom Starts Here team members will contact you to set up an initial meeting. We gather information that will tell us exactly what kind of resources you need and what help you qualify for.

Step 2

We meet to discuss your needs, goals and dreams. We provide necessary baby items, diapers, coaching and resource navigation on a monthly basis.

Step 3

We continue to be a resource for you and your family along your journey through motherhood. Our goal is to help you grow individually and as a parent. As your circumstances change Mom Starts Here will continue to advise and encourage 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 bought a house, found careers, welcomed another baby, and are getting married in a few short months. Getting pregnant at any age is a journey, and yours is just beginning. Mom Starts Here is an organization for young mothers who need empowerment and support in their choices, but the choice is always yours.
