Founder’s Thought about Creating MOMS, Inc.:

I am excited that God showed me an impactful way of honoring my Mom, Mrs. Nannie Louise Allen Myers, who died in April 2017. I know that Mom would be proud that this organization will help women, and especially elderly women, who may need assistance or need an advocate in times of need.
