Many Mothers offers variety of support avenues

Kai Forsley knows that her job is an uphill climb.

As the executive director of Many Mothers, she knows there’s a deficit to make up.

The Santa Fe-based organization pairs volunteers with moms who need a hand with their infants.

For women interested in assistance, Many Mothers has a simple process.

“Many Mothers have partner agencies that send us direct referrals and in addition, any mother, parent, or caregiver can self-refer,” Forsley said. “People can go to our website, click ‘Enroll Now’ and complete our Family Inquiry Form, and a staff person will respond. In addition to our in-home support program, we offer food assistance, a Caregivers’ Meet-up Group, hygiene supplies, diapers, wipes, referral assistance, and safe sleep education and supplies.”

Aside from physical illness, the pandemic had a significant impact on mothers worldwide.

“Besides the obvious of getting sick with COVID-19, mothers and caregivers were affected by things such as job loss and childcare issues for those that were able to still work,” she said.

Those interested in helping have multiple options.

“Though we do not offer the Maternal Support Program in the Albuquerque area, we accept referrals for people interested in food assistance, baby equipment, diapers, wipes, and other material needs,” she said. “We also are generally accepting and training the right people as volunteers and we are always accepting monetary donations.”
