Motivate Our Minds, Inc. (MOM) is a not-for-profit organization that provides year-round education enrichment for kindergarten through 8th grade. MOM is committed to helping children/youth build character and establish transformative relationships through the experiences they offer. When students know that others care about their personal development and outcomes, they begin to recognize their own potential.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, MOM has continued to help children with online services, calling homes weekly to assist parents with e-learning and school packet challenges. MOM also established a weekly food distribution to help with food insecurity in the Whitely Neighborhood. Individual help has been given to students in the building utilizing mask and distancing. Students will be able to learn by helping in the garden. Individual assistance will be given to students whose parents call and request individual help. A Free Home School Summer Plan is available for families who request one. Volunteers of all ages are welcome to assist in the garden or with online tutoring by calling MOM at (765) 289-1990.

They are in great need of a van to transport the children. If you would like to help, you can make a donation to Hazelwood. Mark the memo line “MOM.” If writing a check, it would greatly help our bookkeeper if you write a separate check from your regular offering. Please prayerfully consider helping this worthy community project.
