AZ Non-Profit Expo
MOMA's house set up an informational booth at the AZ Non-Profit Expo which was held at the Salvation Army KROC Center. The AZ Non-Profit Magazine featured an article on MOMA's house to help spread awareness and let the community know more about what we do to transform female survivors of abuse into self-sufficient independent women.

Sigma Beta Xi Sorority hosted a powerful night of poetry as a fundraiser for MOMA’s house. During the event one of our residents recited a poem that she wrote “Escaping Slavery”. We greatly appreciate these ladies for their contributions to MOMA’s house.
4th Annual Open Door Awards
On October 17, 2014, MOMA’s house hosted its 4th Annual Open Door Awards Ceremony at New Life Community Church.
The theme for the evening was “Out of the Mountain of Despair a Stone of Hope” a quote by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
This was a spectacular night where we celebrated the women who took that next step in transforming their lives for the better.
During the event we also recognized a few of our “Stones of Hope” by presenting them with our Community Service Award.
These individuals have been intricate parts of the foundation for helping MOMA’s house grow.
Bob Batillo, Christi Bill, John Gillis, Linda Newcomb, and Lois Lucas we greatly appreciate your outstanding support. Thank you!
