This year, HFH family residences celebrated Mother’s Day by showering moms with homemade cards, delicious lunches, and creative crafts to thank them for all the wonderful things they do!

Mothers at Clinton Family Residence were welcomed by the afterschool and family services staff for a Mother’s Day event. Kids played and colored while the moms chatted and created vision boards over pizza; the afterschool team took the opportunity to share about the Afterschool & Recreation program that will be opening shortly. When asked what her favorite part about the event was, one mother, Neidy, said it was “bonding with the other mothers.”

Allie’s Place Early Ed hosted a special Mother’s Day lunch to honor all of the amazing moms. The kids were excited to present handmade cards and mugs to show their appreciation. Afterschool & Rec invited Allie’s Place moms for sweet treats and provided card making supplies for the kids to write heartfelt notes.

Allie’s Place Center for Culinary Education & Employment held a Mothers’ Day luncheon. Moms from Allie’s Place and other HFH family residences were invited to enjoy a multi-course meal prepared and served by graduates of the Culinary program—not only providing an invaluable opportunity for students to showcase their newly acquired culinary skills in a food industry setting but also offering the moms a well-deserved moment of pampering and appreciation.

Trinity Baptist Church treated the moms at Williamsbridge to a delicious meal from Bedstuy Fish Fry and distributed donations of essential toiletries including lotion, body wash, soap, toothpaste, and toothbrushes. The gathering was bittersweet as some of the families would soon be moving out of shelter.

Prospect Afterschool crafted Mother’s Day cards with a twist—3D paper bouquets!—and wrote notes to express their gratitude to their moms.
