Mother To Mother is a non-profit 501c3 foundation founded in 2004. Our mission is to distribute essential baby items to needy families in TN. We supply essential equipment, clothing, diapers, products, and gear for infants and young children. Mother To Mother currently has office space in Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital, Nashville General Hospital, and Meharry Medical Clinics. These sites aid in streamlining our distribution channels, making it possible to distribute items throughout the day to various counties in Middle Tennessee. After starting the charity, we began partnering with social service agencies in Nashville to help reach as many children as possible. Please view the list below of our community partner organizations in the Nashville, TN metro area.
The Mother To Mother model recognizes that parents and families who need diapers most likely need other social services as well. Instead of creating a separate social service delivery system, we partner with other non-profits in Tennessee who are already qualifying people for need and working with them toward "whole" solutions. Mother To Mother partners with family services agencies, crisis nurseries, domestic abuse shelters, homeless shelters food pantries, senior citizen agencies, disability networks, faith-based organizations and government human services agencies -- we become their diaper resource, increasing their capacity to more fully support individuals and families in need.
