The Mothers Matter Centre’s 20th Anniversary Celebration and presentation of its annual Because Mothers Matter Awards will take place, virtually, on October 21, 2020.
This year, the MMC, proud home of the Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters (HIPPY) program, celebrates 20 years of changing lives in Canada. It is a journey of 20,000 low-income newcomer, refugee, Indigenous and other Canadian mothers who have overcome unique educational, linguistic, and cultural barriers and who share courage, determination, and resilience.
The event will include the story of the MMC as well as the Because Mothers Matter Awards. To mark this important milestone, the MMC sought the guidance of Indigenous supporters and champions to provide advice on ways to pay respect an recognize the organization’s two decades of outstanding work. As a result, our Indigenous partners have graciously agreed to guide the MMC in a traditional blanketing ceremony at the event to honour accomplished mothers’ exceptional community work.
We kindly ask that you support us in this event through the purchase of a private virtual Zoom room for you and your guests.
