To uplift women to live a better life.
After the passing of her mother in 2017, Vanessa Myers Mason, Founder and President of MOMS, Inc. wanted to honor her memory in a special way. Her vision is that the group becomes an advocate for older women, assisting them with basic needs such as food, shelter and clothing and render support to younger women by helping them to attain training, financial assistance or other support that they may need. The Board members, who like Vanessa, cared for and/or served as an advocate for their mothers during the course of their lives.
a) To assist women in need of services to help them fulfill their dreams and live a better life through education, financial assistance, or family support.

c) To assist elderly women through advocacy, financial assistance, and to ensure them access to necessities such as shelter, food, and clothing.
