M.O.M.I.E's new facility will be a vibrant community space, enhancing and supporting the revitalization of the Georgia Avenue corridor, and will be strategically located across the street from Howard University.
M.O.M.I.E's New Home
With a proven track record of supporting the positive development of young people since 2000, M.O.M.I.E's (Mentors of Minorities in Education) Inc. has launched a one million dollar building campaign and seeks major gift donors to close a $500,000 funding gap to complete a unique and exciting community building project on Georgia Avenue. This project will be a vibrant community facility, enhancing and supporting the city’s revitalization of the Georgia Avenue corridor, and is strategically located across the street from Howard University. M.O.M.I.E’s dynamic new headquarters will:
- Nurture Communities -- By establishing year-round educational Programs serving low to mid-income families, including: a model Montessori child development center; After-School and Summer Programs; and, a community training site geared towards supporting disadvantaged families living in the Washington D.C. area;
- Improve DC Environmentalism – By developing an eco-green demonstration site featuring energy efficient design elements that will show how small community programs can champion DC’s new environmental standards; and,
- Boost Local Tourism – Through the creation of a year-round cutting-edge interactive Children’s Black History Museum which has the potential to attract thousands of children and visitors and help area commercial revitalization efforts.
We invite you to join our one million dollar capital campaign to leverage public and private funds to transform a formerly nuisance property into a community gem, with the potential to be a cultural catalyst for this “Great Main Street” corridor. M.O.M.I.E’s building project will directly complement the current community chemistry of Georgia Avenue. With Howard University planning a new multi-million dollar town center, DDOT planning a streetscape project, Banneker Recreation Center undergoing massive improvements, and the establishment of a cultural heritage trail, M.O.M.I.E’s new home will not only complement this explosive creative energy, but will also help to establish Georgia Avenue as a dynamic cultural legacy destination spot.
M.O.M.I.E’s has demonstrated its ability to deliver outstanding program outcomes and fiscal responsibility, as proven by its continued financial support from numerous DC funding agencies, including the Humanities Council of Washington, DC; the Children & Youth Investment Trust Corp, and numerous foundations. We are now soliciting additional major gifts to help breathe life into this exciting community facility capital project. Please join us in this movement.
