Introducing our newly elected board members: Michael Crenshaw and Melissa Simon. A big "Thank You" to our outgoing Secretary, Ms. MaryAnn Wilkerson for her commitment and dedication.
Forever Being Involved
MOMA’s house CEO/Founder Ms. Maraion Douglas has been the recipient of the following awards in 2013:
Angel on Earth Award from Angels Among Us Project. This award was presented to Ms. Douglas by CEO, John Shimer, for selfless lifestyle and personal sacrifices to benefit those less fortunate. Her dedication and hard work is greatly appreciated.
All God’s Children Collector’s Club of Arizona held a luncheon for Notable African-American Men and Women of Arizona. Ms. Douglas was presented the Harriet Tubman Humanitarian Award for selfless dedication to helping women transform their lives while in recovery from domestic violence and human trafficking.
In April 2014, Ms. Douglas will receive the Director’s Community Leadership Award from the Director of the FBI in Washington, D.C. This is a huge honor and achievement; therefore, we would like to not only congratulate Ms. Douglas, but also thank the FBI – or as Maraion would say the “Forever Being Involved” team for supporting MOMA’s house over the years.
ASU and Brown Mackie College Angels
In 2013, Arizona State University interns were instrumental with helping MOMA’s house residents’ with their schedules, computer skills, resume writing, job searches and much more. They also dedicated countless hours to special events and fundraisers. Their commitment shined during the Open Door Awards ceremony, which was a tremendous help to a great evening for the Team and residents of MOMA’s house.
This year MOMA’s house was blessed to partner with Brown Mackie College Phoenix. Through their externship program, four wonderful young women each contributed a minimum of 120 hours of service to MOMA’s house. We are so pleased to know that our externs have chosen to continue their work here at MOMA’s house after completing their degrees. We look forward to working with more externs in the future!
