BOND is founded on the belief that families are the foundation of our nation, parents are the center of each family, and a mother is the heart of a single mother household. Experience shows us the BOND a daughter has with her mother is crucial to her success.

Through mother to mother mentoring, mother-daughter programming, and cultural experiences mothers and daughters will learn, grown, BOND together.  These experiences will build each mother and daughters capacity to lead generations of women to come while ensuring every single mother household will have access to the tools and supports to build strong positive mothers, daughters, and families.  


BOND - Building Our Nation’s Daughters works to engage, mentor, and build single mothers in Baltimore to cultivate positive mother-daughter relationships, strengthen single-mother families, and lead advocacy efforts to ensure every single mother household has equitable access to opportunities.
