Original Mother's International

Original Mother's International (OMI) is the parent organization for Detroit's Brown Moms, a moms helping moms program whose members rely on each other for support and resources. The women share clothing, furniture, food, supplies and knowledge. Twice weekly free virtual classes provide education, exercise, guidance and necessary skills needed to raise children in today’s world.

The original intent of Lanay Gilbert, founder, was to have all needs met within the organization but this proved to be more difficult than originally conceived, especially during COVID. D2N is providing donated clothing, financial resources and administrative assistance.

Original Mother's International is a Highland Park-based organization with strong ties to Avalon Village.
