Sponsorships available for OMH’s Women on the Rise event

By Staff | Sep 23, 2021

Local businesses have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of the young women residing at Our Mother’s Home in Fort Myers. Sponsorship packages for the organization’s largest event of the year, Women on the Rise, are now available to help OMH provide teen mothers with a supporting environment to stay with their children, learn life skills and continue their education.

“Our sponsors make it possible for us to provide these young girls and their children with a safe space to thrive,” said Our Mother’s Home Executive Director Alicia Miller. “This year’s event will pave the path of an exciting future for our girls. We are proud to provide an opportunity for the women in our community to focus on their mental health and wellness while helping Our Mother’s Home further our mission of empowering young mothers.”

The mission of Our Mother’s Home is to help teen mothers and their children transition from foster care to stable, productive lives by breaking the cycle of generational poverty. At this year’s event, OMH will present the first Dr. Teresa Sievers Pathway to Freedom Fund to one of the young women living in the home, allowing her to accomplish her goals without the burden of financial restraints in honor of Dr. Teresa Sievers.

Women on the Rise will be held on Friday, Oct. 1, from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m., at The Collaboratory in Fort Myers. Several guest speakers and an expert panel of professionals will share their insight on how women can live happier and healthier lives.

Our Mother’s Home was founded in 2000 by Helen Coppage, a foster parent who saw the need for a dedicated residential program to allow teenage mothers and their babies to remain together as mother and child. The organization provides a safe environment and transition for teen mothers (ages 11-21) and their children from foster care and human trafficking to stable, happy, and productive lives by providing a nurturing home, education, parenting support, along with physical, mental and spiritual care. This unique home is the only one of its kind in Southwest Florida. For more information, call 239-267-4663 or visit ourmothershome.org.
