Charity Recipient: Mothers of Black Boys (MOBB Inc.)
Mothers of Black Boys, Incorporated is a nonprofit support group for mothers raising black boys. We strive to support each other and establish healthy relationships to better address the needs of our sons. MOBB, Inc. was established to offer resources, support, and networking opportunities that improve the overall growth and development of black males.
This organization is beneficial as it provides parents of black males with a non-discriminatory support system, whereby they are able to exchange experiences, solutions, and opportunities that they would not otherwise be accessible to them. The sons of members of MOBB, Inc. will form a brotherhood to help them deal with life issues as a unit. We believe in giving back to the community. Community service is a significant part of our initiatives, where we focus on giving a hand to other mothers and their sons.
