The Community Roots Collective began as the dream of a local midwife who wanted to support her clients beyond the 6 week postpartum visit. Over the past 2 years, we have felt our community embrace us. We have made new friends and have seen return visits from old ones. We have grown through the support of a handful of businesses who honor the lives of women and families. We have found the love and support of community women and men who are all passionate about supporting families through the often tumultuous journey of parenthood. We believe and hope we are making a difference and have created a welcoming space that is inviting to all. We want to do more, to reach more, to grow more, to support YOU more.
That is why we decided to incorporate as a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization.
Our mission as a nonprofit is the same- to empower families with the education, resources, and love they need to grow. Our goal is to cultivate community and create a village, so that parents might be lifted up and not brought down.
Our program scope can be broken down into 4 main areas:
Education- informative classes and workshops, film screenings, and safety seminars
Health- reproductive health & childbearing wellness programs, to body care such as yoga classes and chiropractic care
Support- moms groups, dads groups, meetups, special community gatherings
Family- kid friendly craft times, movies, and healthy parties throughout the year
We need your help and your contributions to be successful.
The Community Roots Collective is needed in our community. Really, it isn’t only needed in our community, it’s needed everywhere. New parents need more support. They need a good foundation for those roots and a supportive and nurturing environment to grow strong and healthy.
