Mom2Mom improves the lives of children in poverty by supporting their moms. Mom2Mom’s unique, community-centred model supports low-income moms to move from surviving to thriving. They believe when moms thrive, children thrive.
Mom2Mom was co-founded in 2012 by Dr. Joanne Roussy and Dr. Barbara Fitzgerald. As a developmental paediatrician, Dr. Fitzgerald created an innovative outreach model wherein she brought her services to Vancouver’s inner city schools. During her 17 years in the schools she saw that although children were in loving homes, their mothers faced exceptional barriers to setting them up to succeed at school and in life.
