Massapequa, NY - September 16, 2014 - On September 16, 2014 the National Association of Mothers’ Centers (NAMC) announces and reveals its re-branding initiative, culminating with the launch of its new website and changing its name to “Mom-mentum.” This transformation is being implemented in conjunction with the not-for-profit organization’s reorganized focus and mission and it progressively adapting to the ever-changing market while reflecting the professionalism and ambition of the women and mothers its serves and supports.

Our Board of Directors decided to re-brand the organization as a way to restructure our marketing and support programs, as well as update our mission and strategic vision. Renaming National Association of Mothers’ Centers to Mom-mentum will allow our organization to reach an audience of mothers and women of all ages more effectively,” said Sharon Sabba Fierstein, Chairperson, Mom-mentum Board of Directors.
