The Mamas who make up Cincinnati Moms Blog are incredible in so many ways. Not only are they amazing mothers, each in their own special ways, but they are also a talented, kind and incredible group of women. This page is dedicated to them and the things that they are passionate about.
This is the heart of CMB.
Bake Me Home
I believe that the more children are exposed to serving others, the more they begin to think outside of themselves. They become more satisfied with what they have and increasingly compassionate to others.

But it’s about more than meeting needs. Making sure these kiddos have clothes is just the beginning. The real work is in recruiting more people to love on and invest themselves in these kids who simply didn’t ask to be in the situation they are in. It’s about reuniting broken families and breaking the cycle that broke them in the first place. It’s about shining light in the dark places and giving hope to the hopeless.

Both homelessness and mental illness make me – and I’m guessing I’m not alone here – uncomfortable. Discomfort with my own privilege tinged with perhaps a whisper of fear that I could lose it is a powerful incentive to look away. But to keep looking away further marginalizes the very people who most need help.

Matthew 25 Ministries
I want to help creating lasting change in our world, and I want to know that my time and money make a difference.

One in Cincy
One in Cincy promotes ways to “start the conversation” about race. Ignorance is the enemy of understanding. The more we know and respect about one another, the more unified we all can be. The work of the campaign is focused on uniting our city and loving our city – made up of all different races and cultures.

Stray Animal Adoption Program (SAAP)
Happy endings (Happy Tails, they say) are SAAP’s specialty. They are an all-volunteer rescue organization in Northern Kentucky that finds homes for over hundreds of animals a year. They pull animals – even the highest need animals – from shelters, and sometimes, from roadsides or creeks. Volunteer foster families take them into their homes, give them love, training, and veterinary care.

Child Life Disaster Relief
Children are often the poster faces of disasters, but are often not the first to receive attention in the aftermath. This makes sense because as a parent, your job is to provide for those basic survival needs first and foremost. We have to keep our kids healthy and safe! Fortunately, there are some organizations dedicated primarily to the support of those children, directly impacted by disaster. Child Life Disaster Relief (CLDR) is one of those organizations.

Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
My husband’s battle with cancer was incredibly frightening and sometimes I can’t believe that it even happened. What I will never forget, though, is the support of friends and family as well as that of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS).

Over the last few years, I’ve learned about the Melodic Connections program in Cincinnati, which is a community music therapy studio, providing services to all ages and abilities. The program prepares their students for the community and prepares the community for the students. At Melodic Connections, each voice is unique and each voice will be heard.

Hope Over Heroin
Conceived over 3 years ago, Hope Over Heroin is an awareness campaign, outreach to the addicted, and faith-based recovery program all rolled into one. As one of the lead Pastors over the program, Billy Price points out, “Drug addicts don’t come to church. So the church has to come to them.” In the three years since, Hope Over Heroin has operated on a tour spanning from Montana to Washington D.C., drawing over 70,000 people in total to their rallies. They call themselves “Hope Dealers.”

Operation Christmas Child
[Samaritan’s Purse] wants to help people all around the world. Operation Christmas Child is just one of the amazing things they do. With the organization, they want to spread the love of Christ to children who may never get a Christmas gift. These boxes literally go all around the world, to some very remote places on the planet. “The power of a simple gift” can change someone’s life.
