MOMS Partnership® Orientation
In partnership with the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities and Mathematica, Yale held a MOMS Partnership™ Orientation on February 21-22, 2018 in Washington, D.C., gathering leaders from TANF and other public systems from several communities across the country. The event provided a deeper dive to help these leaders assess whether replicating the MOMS Partnership™ would be the right fit at this time. Photos from this convening are on the left. Stay tuned for more information about how and where we're growing!
The MOMS Partnership™ is Growing!
We have been delighted and humbled to receive significant interest from government leaders to bring the results of the MOMS Partnership™ to other communities across the country.
For public health leaders, implementing the MOMS Partnership™ can be a way to help moms and children achieve new levels of mental and physical wellbeing.
For Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) systems, implementing the MOMS Partnership™ can be a way to address mental health barriers to completing a training program or getting and holding a job.
For child welfare agencies, implementing the MOMS Partnership™ can be a way to ensure parents have more of the supports they need to raise children in healthy, safe homes.
For superintendents and principals, implementing the MOMS Partnership™ can be a way to even increase school attendance among children of caregivers struggling with depression.
Whatever the motivation, these leaders believe, as we do, that amazing things can happen when we partner with women, meeting them where they are, to advance family mental health as a pathway to economic and social mobility.
Setting forth on this common ground, and fueled by the generosity of philanthropic supporters, we are currently embarking to implement the MOMS Partnership™ in partnership with government agencies in three new local sites, with service delivery to begin in all three by Fall 2020 at the latest.
We know there is much preventable pain in communities across the country. We know we can do something about it. And so we begin a new journey.
