Mother’s Nest is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization based in Macon, Georgia, dedicated to providing training, support, and safe and effective baby supplies for underprivileged young women in the Middle Georgia area. Founded in 2022, we received our IRS Tax Determination on March 3, 2023. Our Board of Directors consists of five local philanthropists, including myself, who are deeply committed to giving back to our community.
We established Mother’s Nest to address the growing need and concern about the increased rate of maternal mortality rate in the black and brown community. Therefore, we want to give access to essential baby supplies to disenfranchised young mothers. By offering these resources, we aim to improve mothers’ and babies’ health and well-being.
In addition to providing baby supplies, Mother’s Nest connects mothers with local resources and support services to assist them in their journey toward personal growth and self-sufficiency. Our organization is steadfast in its mission to improve the lives of young mothers and their children in Middle Georgia, and we believe that with the proper assistance, these families can thrive and contribute to a more vital and vibrant community.
Why do we do this
Mother’s Nest’s mission goes beyond providing safe and effective baby supplies for underprivileged Georgia residents. Recognizing the inherent challenges single mothers face in Macon and Middle GA, including head of household status, illiteracy, unemployment, increased chances of preterm deliveries, and maternal mortality, our mission extends to tackling these systemic issues.
In this context, Mother’s Nest aims to empower these women by giving them access to affordable baby supplies, essential support services, educational resources, and opportunities for personal and professional growth. Our goal is to create a nurturing environment where young mothers can become the best version of themselves and, in turn, raise healthy children. By addressing these core issues, we hope to break the cycle of poverty and uplift the underprivileged communities in Georgia.
