Many Mothers provides free, in-home support to Santa Fe families with new babies by:
- assisting parents in transitioning to this new chapter of family life with a newborn;
- encouraging family members in welcoming the newborn and adjusting to the new family structure;
- supporting all parents through a non-judgmental presence, validating their new challenges;
- helping out with light chores to reduce parental stress;
- focusing on the parents’ needs so they may enjoy well deserved respite.
In addition to in-home support, please consider volunteering with Many Mothers to support families through Child Engagement at the Parenting Center, joining our Maternal Mental Health Initiative, or by becoming a member of our Board of Directors.
When parents come to the Parenting Center for certain classes, we provide a safe and loving place for their babies and children to play. As a Child Engagement volunteer, you could spend time reading, drawing, playing, or holding a baby. As some of our services will be offered on a drop-in basis, a regular ~2-hour per week time commitment would be appreciated.

Board of Directors
Many Mothers Has Openings for Board Members!
Many Mothers is a nonprofit organization that has been supporting families with newborn infants for 30 years. Our mission is to provide in-home services and wraparound care to babies and their caregivers in Northern New Mexico. Our long-standing Maternal Support Program provides practical, hands-on support to all families with newborns through home visits by trained volunteers. Many Mothers also operates a Parenting Center for families with children from birth to three-years-old. In addition to classes, we provide food, clothing, safe sleep education and materials, and baby supplies such as diapers, wipes, formula, and baby equipment.
Many Mothers seeks volunteer Board members to advance our mission, represent our organization in the community, and secure the financial resources and partnerships necessary for Many Mothers to grow and flexibly meet future needs. If you are interested in being part of an active board committed to families, please contact our Executive Director Kai Forsley at email@example.com or 505-819-3429.
