Thanks for a great Hearts of Love Gala!
I would like to thank our attendees for making The Annual Hearts of Love Gala a success, as well as our staff, board of directors and volunteers. We could not have done this without you! We are tallying up the totals and will be announcing the total proceeds soon!
Thanks to Krista Fogelsong from NBC-2 will, who served as the Master of Ceremonies.
Congratulations to Mother of the Year Julie Kuhns and Graduate of the Year Carmelina Gomez- Lucas. You made our night special.
As was announced last night, I am resigning as president in March and last night was my last gala as president. I will remain on the board and look forward to supporting Debra Newell, VP of Iberia Bank FM as our next president of the Board of Directors. I know she will be great at continuing the mission of Our Mother’s Home. I will continue to do the weekly parenting class and be part of the Resident Liaison committee.
We welcome our New Big Hearts Society Members.Your are helping plan for our future.
Again, Thank You to Our Gala Sponsors!
Our Mother’s Home
To keep teen mothers from foster care, human trafficking and other traumas together with their children in a safe, nurturing home. Through our Mentored Living Program, residents are provided with education, life skills, parenting classes, physical and mental health care allowing them to become productive members of our community.
To end the repetitive cycle of foster care and generational poverty that afflicts teen mothers and their children.
Our Mother’s Home is a large home with facilities adequate for housing eight teen mothers and their babies. Our Home is unique in many ways, one being that we help teenage mothers from age thirteen to age eighteen, as long as they stay in school or have a job.
Any pregnant or post-partum Florida teen can come to our home to live after the first trimester of pregnancy or with her child, if the baby has already been born.
As a privatized 501(c)3 organization, Our Mother’s Home raises 50 – 60% of its own funding, to provide teen moms a supporting environment to stay with their children, learn life skills, and finish their education. We depend heavily on our dedicated volunteers, contributions of funds, commodities and services. Our success rate has generated great interest among those interested in decreasing the rate of children in foster care.
