Yesterday was Mother’s Day and it probably comes as no surprise to any of you that we were celebrating and honoring all the incredible mothers who we have the chance to work with each day. But we don’t think that celebration should ever be limited to just one day of the year, which is why we’re continuing it today!
It is with deep excitement and joy that we are releasing our final evaluation report from our second cohort of The Magnolia Mother’s Trust. We view this report not only as a testimony of the life-changing effects cash and programs grounded in trust and dignity can have for mothers, but also as an opportunity to share and celebrate the stories of the mothers who have been a part of this program.
With the backdrop of a global pandemic that disproportionately affected women of color in so many ways, participants in The Magnolia Mother’s Trust were able to meet their basic needs, prioritize their health and the health of their family, and had the agency to make decisions for their family as they saw fit. We hope you’ll take some time to read the full report below and celebrate these amazing women alongside us.
