KSFR reports on the work Many Mothers is doing for families before, during and post-pandemic

When the pandemic forced schools and childcare centers to shut down, more than five million American mothers gave up their jobs. Currently, The New York Times reports that 1.3 million of these women are still out of work. As a result, the leaders of more than 200 small, medium and large companies have formed the Care Economy Business Council, which is urging sweeping reforms in the caregiving infrastructure so more mothers can return to work.

Santa Fe Reporter | Many Mothers is expanding with the Village Closet

A thin white sheet acting as a curtain covers dozens of books, toys, and other baby supplies.  The room, about the size of the large closet, has floor-to-ceiling shelves stuffed with maternity clothes, bouncers, portable cribs, bilingual books, breastfeeding pads, toothbrushes and blankets. It’s the grand opening of the Many Mothers’ Village Closet, where new and gently used items for newborns to 3-year-olds can be bought on a donation basis. “The core of our program is a maternal support program.  It’s designed to be that village that families need and don’t have.  It actually trains volunteers to go into the home and offer a new mom or a new dad and offer hours of practical, physical, hands-on support.”

Santa Fe New Mexican | Village Closet Hopes to Fill Need

Raising a child is arguably more costly than ever.  That’s why Many Mothers–a local nonprofit that offers support to families with newborn babies or recently adopted infants–decided to launch its latest project, The Village Closet. The closet seeks to bridge a gap by providing donated baby items to low-income families. A baby carrier that would have cost $100 in a retail store can be purchased for $10.”Parenting is stressful in general, and when our basic needs aren’t met, it gets even more stressful.” The hope is that the closet “helps decrease that financial strain…and then that improves the child’s wellbeing.”

Tumbleweeds | No Mama is an Island

The Many Mothers postpartum parenting group sheds loneliness and spreads laughter: a drop-in weekly gathering offers a space where new caregivers–mostly moms–connect with each other. Many Mothers started this group for parents and children from birth to preschool age.  It came at the request of many of the 100-plus families we support annually, who described coming home from work stressed, not spending enough time with their children, and feeling isolated from friends and family.
