Our Team

Michelle McClain

Director & Founder

Michelle founded Mothers Helping Mothers Inc. in 2014 but was an official 501c3 nonprofit organization by 2020. Inspired by her own hardships in life, she created this non-profit to help other mothers and families in need. As she has also struggled with many of the issues facing her clients, she has a personal connection to the mission of Mothers.

As an abuse survivor and mother of 5, she became a single mother at the age of 17. With a lack of support, she struggled to finish school while simultaneously raising her child. Though it was not easy, she eventually continued her education and received her high school diploma and her Associate’s degree in Human Services in 2020. She is also a certified Drug and Alcohol Specialist. As well as being the Director of Mothers, she also volunteers as a case manager for multiple organizations. Her mission is to help others in need of empowerment, resources, and guidance.
