We specialize in CRAFT which stands for Community Reinforcement And Family Training. This is an evidence-based and CBT-based approach therapy for any family member who has a loved one struggling with addiction. It is so easy to lose yourself in addiction or even in someone else’s addiction. Aside from addiction we also provide a wide range of services such as coaching, counselling and more. We work also with immigrants who are experiencing some challenges and looking to achieve mental wellness. My team and I have faced similar challenges during our migration and transition period in Canada.

Mesh of Mothers (M.O.M) Foundation Inc. was founded in May 2021 during the pandemic as a way to fill gaps and create a safe and positive environment/services to meet the unique needs of black mothers in Edmonton. Our mission is to provide culturally relevant services and programs to meet the needs of Afro-Canadian women, expectant mothers and mothers in all stages of their lives by providing culturally sensitive services to build and nurture a strong community of women who will raise healthy and confident children who take pride in their culture.
One of our goals at M.O.M is to work towards bringing awareness to maternal mental health within the black community and the devastating impact it has on families. We are truly passionate about this as we strive to reduce the stigma around this topic. Furthermore, we provide fitness programs, mommy and me programs, a book club, psychoeducation, social outings and maternal mentorship to our moms. We also have an online platform where our moms are able to connect and ask questions in real time. This is especially helpful to our mothers who sometimes feel isolated.
As we are currently aware of the health disparities faced by afro-heritage mothers in accessing supports, Mesh of Mothers is finding practical and innovative ways to create better outcomes for our mothers.

M.O.M can be found on Instagram and Facebook (@meshofmothersfondation).
