SUMMARY

Mamatoto Village is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization devoted to creating career pathways for Women of Color in the field of public health and human services; and providing accessible perinatal support services designed to empower women with the necessary tools to make the most informed decisions in their maternity care, their parenting, and their lives.

By offering creative solutions to combating health disparities for moms, babies and their families, Mamatoto Village's innovative approach increases awareness, fosters a space for resilience and building upon women's strengths, and encourages the family to adopt healthy lifestyles that promote community transformation. We believe that the right to health and self-preservation according to one’s own will is a basic human right; therefore, if women, due to socioeconomic status, ethnicity, or citizenship status, lack access to the information and tools they need to preserve their lives; the lives of their children; and long-term interests, then it is considered a violation of their rights as humans. Mamatoto Village is dedicated to acting towards the cause of reproductive justice in the best capacity possible. Additionally, we believe that women can be strengthened by other women from their communities to give rise to a more cohesive and supportive environment for childrearing and family wellness. ​
