New nonprofit knows ‘it takes a village’
DeKALB – Momma’s Village, a nonprofit organization that offers mentoring for girls 11-18 and parenting programs for mothers and expecting mothers ages 15-21, is seeking community support to continue its mission.
Momma’s Village offers services such as mentoring, advocacy, resources and referrals, supplies and necessities, educational and vocational support, and special events and programs. The organization was founded by Northern Illinois University graduates Sharron Bugg and Tifarah Jackson, both wives and mothers themselves.
Bugg has mentored young girls since she was in high school and has dreamed for years of operating her own not-for-profit. Jackson was a teen mom who knows the difficulties young mothers face and the strength they need to achieve their goals.
