In the month of May, moms are celebrated, but homeless moms are usually forgotten. Every mother deserves to feel special on Mother’s Day! Martha’s Village and Kitchen houses dozens of homeless mothers and children right now. Every homeless mother who resides at Martha’s Village and Kitchen is working towards self-sufficiency, independence, and better future for herself and for her children. Along with food and shelter, they receive counseling, job training, medical care, and reliable childcare.
In an effort to make these moms feel special, community members, local businesses, and the staff at MVK went to work on creating a Mother’s Day weekend for them to remember. All moms deserve to celebrate Mother’s Day! A special “thank you” to Milan Institute of Beauty and Coachella Florist for their wonderful contributions of time, talent, and items that made the moms feel fantastic!
Some of the moms who live at MVK got makeovers on Friday for Mother’s Day! The wonderful people at Milan Institute of Cosmetology made our moms look fantastic and feel special!
Our Children’s Services Department hosted a Mother’s Day Tea. The children presented their moms with special gifts, our kitchen pulled out all the stops, and volunteers from Target helped to serve the moms and their children. Each mom received special gifts from their child, and fun was had by all!
The weekend ended with a special dinner being served on Mother’s Day!
