Happy Mother’s Day! Whether you’re sending your Mom flowers or taking her out to brunch, you should know there’s only one gift that she really wants: you to get a job. Unfortunately, there’s no easy way to do that. Our course, Found Your Career, will help, but most of it is up to you. If you really want to honor your mother with your new job, you could consider working for a non-profit that is focused on helping new mothers like Baby’s First Home. They are a New York City based organization that is building and running “a supportive housing unit for 5 mothers (17-21) and their children.” They’re in the extremely early stages at this point, but they seem to be well on their way to achieving their mission of helping “mothers build independent lives and stable futures for themselves and their children.”
Now, if you go to BabysFirstHome.org, you’ll notice that there’s just a single page with a link to an e-mail address. That’s because Baby’s First Home is just getting started. I found out about them on Idealist because they had some internships posted, but I noticed inside those postings they mentioned possible job opportunities. Here’s what I found:
There are many other positions available. If you qualify for any of the positions listed below, please contact us!
Investor Relations/Human Capital Management
Potential Board Member:
– Licensed counselor

I wish that I could tell you more about the organization, but that’s all that I could find. I’d imagine that they don’t have funding quite yet for full salaries, but the potential to be a part of something so early will hopefully make up for that. You can reach out to the people behind Baby’s First Home at email@example.com and let them know that you’d like to get involved.
