No-Cost Maternal Support in Babies' First Six Months

We consider ourselves truly lucky to be able to support caregivers and families with home visits in our community!

How can this wonderful service be no-cost? Our flagship Maternal Support Home Visiting Program is 100% volunteer-based and is open to caregivers and new dads, too. The inspiration behind this program is to offer Santa Fe families extra assistance in the fraught early months of having a new baby in the house. How can we help?

Our Programs

Our Mission

Many Mothers’ mission is to provide in-home services and wraparound care to achieve health equity and wellbeing for babies and their caregivers in Northern New Mexico.

Programs for All Families

Our Programs 

Programs are available at no cost to eligible families with infants living within Santa Fe, Rio Arriba, and Los Alamos counties. 


(0 – 6 Months)

Our long-standing Maternal Support Home Visiting Program provides practical, hands-on support to all families in Santa Fe, Rio Arriba or Los Alamos counties with infants.

By connecting families to trained volunteers, we are able to ensure parents have guidance and an extra pair of hands when caring for new babies. Families will receive 36 hours of in-home support for a 12-week period within the baby’s first six months.


Safe Sleep
(0 – 6 Months)

Our Safe Sleep Program promotes current safe sleep practices. We provide research-based education that is proven to reduce the incidence of SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome) in our community. Safe Sleep materials are also provided.



The Basic Needs Program provides items to families in Northern New Mexico with a baby through the following services:

  • Baby Needs (0 – 12 Months): With support through Baby Needs, families can receive diapers, wipes, baby food, formula, and hygiene items.
  • Farm-to-Families (0 – 3 Years): Through Farm-to-Families, we provide mainly organic food items to pregnant as well as breastfeeding moms, infants, and their families.
  • Village Closet (0 – 3 Years): The Village Closet offers new and gently used items such as clothing, baby equipment, and books for children. A selection of maternity clothing is also available.


(0 –  12 Months)

The Navigation Program connects any family with a baby to community resources to support positive outcomes for families and their children. Navigation focuses on parenting education, mental health, housing/rental support, transportation, food, safety, utilities, and more.


(0 – 1 Year)

The purpose of this group is to connect, hold space for one another, and to strengthen the new caregiver network within Santa Fe. This group is for Many Mothers past and present participants of our Maternal Support Home Visiting Program. If you are interested in enrolling and/or learning more, please email Marissa Visscher at


“The kids and I adore our volunteer and are enjoying all she does. She has won the respect of my three year old, who looks forward to her visits and undivided attention. She jumps right in helping with my two and a half month old, and I have been very comfortable with everything she does to help our family. I honestly appreciate any and all support I get; it is quite a blessing to our family. The support provided by Many Mothers is amazing.”
