Changing the Odds

We are celebrating a phenomenal conference where we learned that flourishing happens when we choose vulnerability, joy, creativity and priortize racial healing. Plans for 2022 will be announced soon!

We believe in many things,

and each one is central to our ultimate goal of helping children and families achieve their full potential.

For nearly 100 years, kids have been at the heart of everything we do.

We know that children with strong social emotional health have the tools to overcome adversity. We know that families working together can break the cycles of poverty and abuse. And we know that innovating at the intersection of mental health and education is an ideal starting point.

At Momentous Institute, we believe that every child has the potential for momentous outcomes.
