Empowering Moms became a non-profit program at in Toto Community Resource Center in 2021. Our mission is to empower women to gain confidence as new moms through a validating, diverse, and accepting community setting.
"Empowering Moms supported and guided me through the toughest period of my life. I struggled with PPA during the 4th trimester, and the group was a huge help in my recovery. I am so thankful I found this group, and I truly appreciate the other moms I’ve met and shared support." - A first time mom
We know that having a village for resources and support can help create a healthier experience in many ways.
"During the new moms group I gained the most valuable information on transitioning into parenthood. I also received encouragement during a difficult time in my marriage not to mention an amazing group of wonderful friends!" - A mom of two
Our program helps women to connect and access a support system.
"I was struggling as a new and first time mom with things not going “as planned” or worrying I wasn’t doing things “right”. Empowering moms gave me an outlet to talk about those feelings and helped me realize that I was doing a better job than I thought. It’s a welcoming and comfortable space to share what’s weighing on my mind and get real support from other moms. It also helped me feel less isolated as a new mom and was amazing for my mental health." - A single mom
