    IDS Long Island helping Momma's House

    What is MOMMAS House?

    MOMMAS HOUSE provides housing and support services to young mothers and their babies. At MOMMAS House we seek to give the mother the opportunity to continue her education or vocational experience interrupted by pregnancy. With guidance and direction, the young mothers can learn to support themselves and their children independently.


    With the help of our Pay It Forward Committee, IDS Long Island has committed to helping redesign and refurbish some of the rooms that Mommas House could use a special touch by our wonderful team at IDS Long Island!  Once again, Dee Manicone will lead our PIF Committee throughout this project, and we welcome Designer Nicole DelaCruz in leading this cause for Mommas House.  Mommas House currently has 3 homes that need some help, and we have started with the Hempstead House (see below)
