Published on June 16, 2022 by Jacquelyn Clemmons
Hello Okionu family, As we approach our one year anniversary we are thrilled to announce we will receive a Black Women Impact Grant from Goldman Sachs One Million Black Women!
Launched in partnership with Black women-led organizations, the One Million Black Women
initiative, is the largest commitment of its kind in size and scope to drive investment in housing;
healthcare; access to capital; education; job creation and workforce advancement; digital
connectivity; and financial health to narrow the dual gender and race gap faced by Black women.
With this grant, we will have access to unrestricted, multi-year funding to scale and support new
Black parents by providing six weeks of meals and group support to address the needs of low-
income postpartum families. This partnership offers us the opportunity to change the entire
trajectory of postpartum care among low-income families.
We are so thankful for their belief in our mission and look forward to building on this
partnership to improve the lives of postpartum Black women everywhere.
