Hands-On Help for Families with Infants
The families we support are a perfect representation of the diversity found in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Filled with hope and exhaustion as new members join their family, each caregiver is met by our volunteers with open arms and an open heart, ready to do for them whatever they need to feel more relaxed and more confident as they go about their days and weeks. The comfort and joy that each match brings is palpable and can be seen on everyone’s faces.
What Families are Saying
Forming a Special Bond
"[My volunteer] was incredible. My three year old formed a special bond with her and looked forward to her visits every week. Having someone come to my home who will accept where I am — with dirty dishes, tired eyes, and the like — and support me is invaluable. It gives me time to breathe, and in doing so, it helps facilitate a better relationship with my family and a better relationship with myself."
Support for New Families
"It’s easy as a first time mom to worry about it all. But my volunteer helped me to put things into perspective and reassured me I’m doing just fine."
A Difference in the Lives of Our Children
"Many Mothers has made an enormous difference in our lives with both of my children. I can’t recommend it enough and appreciate the services so wholeheartedly."
