Recognition Program

Extra-Ordinary Moms

Extra-Ordinary Moms’ (EOM) is a recognition program for mothers dealing with homelessness. Its purpose is to inspire and motivate their self-worth through positive reinforcement, personal development and membership in a supportive community.

The EOM Program encourages determined mothers to feel proud of the progress they make each day to be the best mom they can be with the resources they have. The program supports their efforts by offering an opportunity to:  learn from other women in a birthday party workshop, work with our advisory board, receive a personal self-care kit and attend a special tea recognizing their efforts in moving forward despite their circumstances.   

The Extra-Ordinary Mom Program is in honor of Extra-Ordinary Birthdays Founder Schinnell Leake’s recognition as L’Oreal Paris 2015 National Women of Worth Honoree.  The Women of Worth is inspired by the L'Oréal Paris belief that “ every woman is worth it" and honors the intrinsic beauty and worth of extraordinary everyday women. 

Literacy Program

Extra-Ordinary Readers

Through our Extraordinary Readers (EOR) Program, we encourage self-worth and forward thinking toward a bright future for homeless children. Each child who receives an Extraordinary Birthdays (EOB) celebration is also treated to a very special party favor—a brand new, age appropriate children’s book, chosen especially for them by our party planning team. EOR supports literacy for all children, regardless of socioeconomic status, as well as pride in ownership of a new book. Books are collected for the program through our annual book drive and our Amazon book drive wish list. We truly appreciate every tax deductible charitable contribution toward adventures in reading for homeless children!
