Made by Momma
Made by Momma is a grassroots non-profit organization and registered Canadian charity located in Calgary. We help families facing situations of adversity and crisis by providing healthy homemade meals, baked goods, baby essentials, children’s items, supportive in-home visitors and other services to allow mothers the time they need to rest, recover and focus on their families and their health.
Made by Momma was founded on the belief that women helping women is one of the best and strongest support systems that has ever existed.
Our mission is to provide wholesome nourishment and nurturing care to mothers and young children experiencing situations of adversity or times of crisis.
We began as a small group of women with big ideas to help make the lives of struggling moms in our community a little bit easier with some healthy meals, baby essentials and a helping hand. Those big ideas have now grown into a large network of over 500 volunteers providing healthy meals, wholesome baking, baby and children’s clothing, diapers, other household necessities, as well as a friendly ear to listen to and support struggling families.
Made by Momma provides services to women & families who are affected by situations of adversity or in times of crisis, including, but not limited to:
• mothers struggling through postpartum depression
• families affected by cancer or other life-threatening illnesses
• families whose children have severe childhood illness or special needs
• the hospitalization of a child or parent
• mothers and children who have left a situation of abuse
• families transitioning from a homeless shelter
• loss of home due to fire or flood
• new immigrants to Calgary/Canada
• loss of job and families struggling financially
• birth of multiple babies
• pregnant and parenting teen mothers
• supporting single mothers attending school
• parents with children who are struggling after the death of their spouse
As a 100% volunteer-run charity donated dollars are very effective at helping families directly - purchasing ingredients to prepare meals, packaging for freezing meals/baking, purchasing baby essentials - such as diapers, wipes, formula etc.
Thank you for your interest in supporting our charity. With your help we can make an impact!
