Our Work

Programs that Empower Mothers

We have methodically designed our programs for mothers in crisis to have equal, easy, and free access to immediate support. Every element of the program is offered both virtually and physically and built to empower mothers to increase resilience, overcome risk-factors, and achieve stability for their families.

Our Expansion Project

In partnership with Child Welfare Agencies, Pregnancy Resource Centers, and Churches, ĒMA is developing pilot programs to launch in densely populated urban communities with high volumes of poverty, child abuse and neglect, and child removals.

Pilot programs will allow the comparative analysis of Impact Evaluations across states and cities that will further furnish the body of knowledge on how to most effectively generate sustainable outcomes through the lens of safely reducing the number of children in foster care and increasing mother-child wellness.

ĒMA is constructing a cohort of like-minded and prevention focused organizations and initiatives within the field of Child Welfare. This affords ĒMA the opportunity to expand their scope with additional elements of support such as: pregnancy testing, mental health, behavioral health, therapeutic, legal, housing, and employment services.
