Moms on a

Mission


SLYC’s Moms On a Mission (M.O.M.s) began during the pandemic. MO.M.s are women and caregivers living in West Baltimore who understand the community's needs best. This program gives M.O.M.s the financial, organizational, and administrative support needed to implement monthly community impact initiatives. Through their work, M.O.M.s are creating effective and enduring solutions in their neighborhoods.

June Jubilee

M.O.M.s hosted a June Jubilee to celebrate all of the milestones that children had missed throughout the pandemic. The day included food, fun, photos, ice cream, games, and prizes. It was a remarkable end to a challenging school year!

Women's Retreat

May 2021 is for M.O.M.s, so a Women's Retreat was in order. It was time for our M.O.M.s to focus on themselves and their own needs for social and emotional well-being. The day was remarkable; a much needed opportunity for renewal and rejuvenation.

Community Cookout

April 2021 was time to socialize by hosting a socially distanced cookout. We had a great time with families, neighbors, and friends! There was lots of food, music, kids playing, and adults (and a couple kids) line dancing. It was a beautiful day!

Field Trip

In March 2021, M.O.M.s were ready for a field trip. Time to get out of our homes and out of our isolation. A COVID-safe field trip to the movies was just what the community ordered. 75+ community members traveled to Cinemark in Towson to see Tom and Jerry. 2 buses, 2 large movie auditoriums, large popcorn and large soda for all!


Care Packages

In February 2021, M.O.M.s put together over 65 care packages to support the health, safety, social, and emotional needs of our community. Packages were full of PPE, hats, gloves, Valentine treats, and more.
