All donations enable us to support low-income moms throughout the SF Bay Area with our integrative wellness groups.

Our groups empower moms with tools that promote mental/emotional health through our mindfulness-based stress reduction program, physical health through our exercise and nutrition program and relational health through our parent education program. We offer these modules in 8 to 10 week sessions, so moms can be immersed in learning and the cultivation of skills in community together.

  • $45 allows us to provide a low-income mom with a 2-hour wellness class

  • $450 supports a low-income mom for 2 hours a week for 10 weeks (one full series)

  • $1,800 supports a low-income mom for 2 hours a week throughout the year; or 4 moms for 10 weeks

  • $6,750 supports 15 low-income moms for 10 weeks

  • $27,000 supports 15 low-income moms for 2 hours a week throughout the year; or 60 moms for 10 weeks

Any donation amount is warmly encouraged, even if it is not in $45 increments.

We need your help to make sure the low-income moms in our community can receive our supportive services!

Our groups empower moms with well-researched and evidence-based tools to decrease anxiety, improve mood and parent more consciously.

Being a mom is hard work. We need each other to parent well.

Moms in our Mindful Moms groups report:

  • Increased sense of calm

  • Improved mood

  • Increased sense of belonging

  • Improved quality of life

  • Improved relationship with kids

“There is no single effort more radical in its potential for saving the world than a transformation of the way we raise our children.”
–Marianne Williamson

We believe that one of the best ways to help transform the way we raise our children is to make sure that mothers are getting the support they need. To this end, we have established partnerships with local organizations to expand our outreach. Our partnerships include:

  • East Palo Alto Library

  • Palo Alto Medical Foundation

  • CORA: Community Overcoming Relationship Abuse

  • Hatch Elementary School

  • New Creation in East Palo Alto

We give special thanks to our generous donors.

VOLUNTEER READING / BABYSITTING

We are currently seeking volunteers to support the Spanish-speaking mothers we will be serving on Saturdays in East Palo Alto this summer.  We are seeking volunteers to hold babies, connect with toddlers and read to kids, while our team at Mind Body Moms supports the moms with our integrative wellness programs.

The current volunteering time is from 10am-11am on Saturdays, from June 30 – Aug 25, 2018 at the East Palo Alto Library. It helps to arrive around 9:45am, to get situated with a little one. The East Palo Alto Library has a Reading Challenge going on all summer, so you can help support the kids with their summer reading!

Please click on the button below if you are interested in this sweet and super helpful volunteer opportunity, and we will be in touch to set you up with volunteering!

I’d Like To Volunteer!
