MOJO Programs & Initiatives

Mojo Mama Grants
MOJO Mama grants are awarded to student mothers at the undergraduate and graduate levels to support childcare and educational needs.  Childcare grant applications are accepted and awarded on a rolling basis between August 1 and April 30.  Educational expense grant applications are accepted and awarded twice per academic year (September 1st and January 15th).  Mamas can apply for childcare grants twice per academic year and education expense grants once per academic year.

Parent Pantry
The MOJO Parent Pantry is a free pop-up market for student-mothers enrolled at the current MOJO host institution. Student-mothers can visit the pantry and procure items such as pampers, wipes, formula, and new or gently used children’s clothing to support their families at no cost.

MOJO Within the Walls
MOJO Within the Walls provides educational resources (i.e. books, notepads, writing utensils, etc.) to mothers participating in education programs during their incarceration. MOJO works directly with corrections administrators as well as other philanthropic organizations to ascertain the needs of these mothers and their programs.

MOJO Muse Gifts
MOJO Muses are mothers whose circumstances inspire us to better support and advocate for mothers across the community.  This program provides resources to mothers who experience hardship related to death, illness, or other drastic life changes.  MOJO Muse gifts are intended to support these mothers and/or their children in their most difficult moments.

“All is Well” Holistic Health Sessions
“All is Well” sessions are designed to provide mothers with access to information about maintaining every aspect of their health and the health of their children.  The focus of these interactions range from gynecological and pediatric health to psychological and spiritual care.

Nneka Nook Lending Library
Nneka is an Ibo word that translates as “mother is supreme.”  The Nneka Nook lending library is a resource that houses texts of mothering scholarship, fiction, resource manuals, etc.  MOJO members are allowed to check out these texts for two to three weeks at no charge.

MOJO Missions
MOJO encourages community involvement through various service projects.  Our MOJO mamas voluntarily participate in these opportunities.  Service projects range from the donation of gently-used baby items and clothing for other mothers on campus to serving mothers in need in the larger community in various ways.
