Mommas House is a place where homeless young women and their children
18-24 years and their babies can live for approximately two years until they find permanent housing. Momma’s House is the loving home that takes care of many important tasks with guidance and direction until the young mothers and their babies can support themselves independently.

Ms. Julia Salat said, “The Key Club has adopted Momma’s House in Glen Cove (there are five locations on Long Island). By adopt, I mean, the Key Club has scheduled a new way to help these young families each month.” She continued, “In September, Key Clubbers organized a food drive and filled their pantries. In October, we took the children and their mom’s trick or treating. We all dressed up in costumes bought by the Key Club and decorated their home with painted pumpkins! It was a great time! This November, we are catering a dinner and serving it to the families.”

This year, the Key Club along with the North Shore Kiwanis Club (sponsors) have embarked on the following other endeavors in addition to Mammas House including:

  • Operation Christmas Child: Creation of gift boxes to be sent worldwide to children in need
  • NOSH Food Drive: Collection of canned foods for NOSH (the food pantry in Glen Cove) for Thanksgiving

Please stay tuned for more with the Key Club as they give thanks and provide all those living at Mammas House this holiday season with joy and happiness. Thank you to Ms. Salat and all of the members of the Key Club who are providing food, clothing, and other important donations to the residents of Mammas House. We are all so proud of you for reaching out to others in the community with such kindness and love.
