YO MAMA’s philosophy and practice is to empower mothers by disrupting the devaluation of women’s invisible labor and increasing the recognition of the ART of Mothering that highlights the legacies of maternal wisdom and know how that sustains healthy mothers, families and communities.

YO MAMA’S HOUSE is a demonstration project and model that many can learn from its MOTHER CENTERED, social gospel and grassroots approach to empowering women as mothers to do their mothering work and creating pathways to wellness for those overburdened, under resources and sick and tired of being sick and tired. Healthy mothers raise healthy children, families and communities.

YO MAMA’S HOUSE is a shared (nonresidential) space for mothers who are working or aspiring artists, community activists/politicians or healers. These spaces include a full kitchen for women who need a commercial kitchen that support learning basic to culinary cooking skills, arts space for creating artwork from multiple genres, wellbeing space for relaxation and rejuvenation, an office/business hub, indoor and outdoor gardens, and spaces for hosting events by members.

YO MAMA’s HOUSE includes
  • Art spaces (with materials to produce a variety of art genres)
  • Industrial kitchen (culinary skill building and catering)
  • Office Hub (computers, fax, copiers, scanners, Notary)
  • Wellness Wing (spa, sauna, walk in tub)
  • Indoor and Outdoor Gardens for Apothecary and Food production
  • Beehives
  • Urban Retreat and Artist Residency Spaces for WOC.

YO MAMA’S HOUSE will create its own revenue streams to sustain itself by being an Airbnb, Urban Artist Retreats Space, services provided by members, and a percentage of the sell of products from art making, kitchen, gardens, hothouses, beehives and services by members.

YO MAMA’S HOUSE will create internships, part time employment and training opportunities for Mamas entering or re-entering the workforce.

The Northside Community can learn about the histories of Black Cooperatives by attending a series of informational meetings and investing dollars towards down payment of YO MAMA’S HOUSE. Continued engagement opportunities include:

  • become engaged as collaborative partners with a shared desire to empower women as mothers.
  • become members by choosing from a tiered membership.
  • volunteer to offer mamas new skills (artist, business, technology, fiber arts, etc.) that promote creating small businesses and pathways to financial stability and wealth.
