Moms on a


Moms On a Mission (M.O.M.) is a program in which mothers and caregivers in West Baltimore collaborate to address issues that affect their children, families, and community. This project ensures those with the greatest stake in the conditions and outcomes of the community are the ones determining priorities, developing programs, connecting to resources, and implementing change. M.O.M. provides financial, organizational, and administrative support required for community members to bring effective, enduring solutions. 


Fall Community Cleanup Day

Renew You Retreat

Action Planning and Work Day 

Creating community and growing engagement requires a safe and welcoming space for families to gather. What better place than Saint Luke's.  M.O.M.s hosted a charette with the youth and gathered together to set priorities and planning.  First action day in the yard. 

Mimosas with M.O.M.s 2022 Reboot Brunch

M.O.M.s came together in fellowship to regroup and plan our next steps of engagement.  This Leadership development session and charrette was a welcomed opportunity to gather, dream big and plan together. 

Christmas Cafe

M.O.M.s, along with our partners at Church of the Good Shepherd, Ruxton and West Baltimore Reniassance Foundation hosted a celebration of the holiday season. Food, music, family portraits, gifts, and fun abound! Tis' the season for family, love, community, and joy! 

Leadership Development & Planning

No event can happen without the hard work and planning of our amazing M.O.M.s, Dads, and Friends. Two excellent leadership development and planning sessions took place in the fall. Wellness and collaboration were on the menu for these wonderful gatherings. 

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.
