  Inside Moma's House

It’s that time of year again – time to stop and reflect on all of the places we’ve gone, people we’ve met, and the places we have yet to go! Over the last three months, MOMA’s house has been blessed to have been at the center of many wonderful events and surrounded by even more amazing people.

Amy Jenkins from Premier Designs, for the second year in a row, hosted a jewelry party fundraiser for MOMA's house. We cannot thank Amy enough for all of her support with donations and the beautiful jewelry pieces for our residents to wear during the 4th Annual Open Door Awards event.


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.

Poetry Reading

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!

Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Maraion Douglas was the guest speaker at the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Travis L. Williams Family Services Center. She spoke to federal investigators and family service employees on how domestic violence can affect individuals in the workplace.
