Opportunity to Learn More About M.O.M.I.E’s TLC

M.O.M.I.E’S TLC is hosting a local business community house on May 8th. It’s a good opportunity to learn more about them.


Don’t know about M.O.M.I.E’S TLC? Well, the description below is from their open house invitation.

Mentors of Minorities in Education’s Total Learning Cis-Tem (a.k.a. M.O.M.I.E’s TLC) is a DC-based nonprofit organization established in 1994 and committed to revitalizing low-income communities. In the spring of 2000, M.O.M.I.E Inc. developed M.O.M.I.E’s Total Learning Cis-Tem (T.L.C), a child development initiative, to respond to the urgent need for high quality educational services for low-income, young children given the tremendous gap in high quality and intentional learning opportunities for our early learners.

Based in the heart of the Georgia Avenue corridor, M.O.M.I.E’s mission is to “nurture the genius” of children and create a transformative educational system through a unique cultural education model. M.O.M.I.E’s has impacted over 500 children and youth through our direct service programs, and over 10,000 children through our community-wide Children’s Gallery of Black History – the majority who are low-income African-American children. M.O.M.I.E’s recently moved into our newly renovated location in the heart of Georgia Avenue, where we are working to realize our vision of establishing an institution for our children and families. We are looking to engage the Georgia Avenue community to collectively enhance our community and help us grow and sustain our work.

In summary, some of our exciting recent achievements include the following:

  • Expanded the After School Program in DC to our new Ward 1 location based at Shining Stars Montessori Academy Public Charter School; Obtained our first federal grant through the 21st Century Community Learning Center Program to implement a new After School Program at Carmody Hills Elementary School in Prince George’s County. We currently support over 175 children and youth year-round through our DC and Maryland program sites.
  • Launched the Youth Ambassadors Initiative, developing academic, career, and leadership skills among our older, long-time youth who have been with M.O.M.I.E’s since their early elementary years; Recently supported the successful transition of 10 long-time youth into high performing middle and high schools including Duke Ellington School for the Arts; School Without Walls Senior High School; Alice Deal Junior High School; Chavez Prep Public Charter School; and Benjamin Banneker Senior High School;
  • Impacted almost 2,000 children in the past year through the Children’s Gallery of Black History, through both the stand-alone exhibition and year-round Mobile Gallery;
  • Secured private funding to complete our “Eco-Green Children’s Center” on Georgia Avenue which currently serves as our new office headquarters and Ward 1 program site.

Our long-term vision is to build M.O.M.I.E’s capacity to serve as a cradle to college pipeline, where we are nurturing our children during the critical early years of their development, making a long-term investment in their lives, and ultimately putting them on that life-long path to success and stability. We are always seeking critical partners to support this journey.

Specifically, we would like to invite local Georgia Avenue businesses, like yours, to take part in creative partnerships that are mutually beneficial to both our organization and yours. While we can offer increased visibility for your business, new contacts, and new potential clients, you may be interested in partnering with us in one or more of the following ways:

  • Offer internships and/or business presentations to our dynamic, motivated and civic-minded high-school aged youth
  • Host in-kind M.O.M.I.E’s events or informational nights at your business
  • Sponsor one of our annual fundraising events that collectively reach over 250 people:
    The Social Justice Gala every February; The Great Persons Ball every October.
  • Sponsor or become a partner of our Community Children & Youth Garden, which is currently in the planning phase and will be located on our back lot. Potential partnership opportunities include receiving produce from the garden once it is built.
  • Participate in one-time or ongoing volunteer opportunities, which range from becoming a mentor for our children and youth to participating in our building beautification day.
  • Provide monetary donation to our organization to help support the critical needs of our year-round programming
  • Rent our space for a monthly meeting, community event, or party!

We invite you to attend our first-ever Local Business Open House at M.O.M.I.E’s on May 8 from 10:00 to 11:30 at our facility at 2616 Georgia Avenue. During this meeting we will bring together multiple Georgia Avenue businesses to discuss how we can all mutually benefit one another and enhance our shared community.

We hope to cross paths with your business soon and continue to impact more residents of the Georgia Avenue Corridor. If you have any questions or inquiries about M.O.M.I.E’s work, please contact me at chitra.momiestlc (at) gmail.com or at (202) 545-1919.
