MIM announces young women's issues initiatives
By: Mehala Isadora Miller Foundation
MIM's 2016-2017 programs will focus on the existing efforts supported by community organizations, leaders and elected officials regarding pregnancy and critical illness issues of mothers living in Brooklyn.
Through leadership, health and social support programs, servicing the needs of young mothers and pregnant women within the community has become a top priority for MIM.
"In cultivating long term goals, we have committed to begin in supporting the community and introducing MIM with making sure we are present at community events to give condoms, STD information, pregnancy test and first aid kits to assist in community care," says MIM founder Joy Frazier.
In reflection and support of MIM, New York City Council Member Laurie Cumbo states, "It's so important that this type of work is happening. There's so many people that need our assistance. That need our support. That need our ability to give, not a hand out but a hand up. An opportunity to love people to care for people."
President of the National Council of Women of the United States Saideh Browne and MIM supporter states, "I'm here to support. I'm here to lend my support and I think it's a wonderful time for us to be together and all of us to really rally around this cause to lend our time our talent our money and our resources."
MIM's young women's initiative includes a speakers program where women who have survived teen pregnancy, mother's with critical illnesses, mothers living in public housing and other examples of triumph share their stories during high school assemblies and community events.
Moving forward in the purpose of assisting others, MIM has participated in community outreach with New York AIDS WALK 2016, local community toy drives and the 2016 Fit in the 35th Community Jamboree (Brooklyn).
