Our Nest

752 Canton Road Akron OH 44312

Since taking ownership of our building in late 2014, we've refurbished two floors of our three-story building. The rooms are comfy, cozy, and esthetically pleasing; all to provide a safe, beautiful, appeasing place where you are able to RELAX and be refreshed! Currently, work is being done by applying for grants and raising money to finish the third floor which is designated for children's programming.

I feel like God freely gave me the vision ... so I ran without looking back.

There is a need for moms to know they are not alone.

Our Volunteers

These women are an AMAZING group of mommas with each of their unique stories, gifts, and passions to serve and dedicate to other moms. They are a fundamental building block of The Nest. As several of the first women who stood up to support new moms and love them through this crazy journey called motherhood, we are so grateful for this support base and everything they have done. What they continue to do would not be possible without each of them!

“When you and your team have passion, when there is a sense you are on a crusade, you become willing to sacrifice to make something bigger than you... Happen. There is always a price paid in energy, time, money and pain to succeed. You will only sacrifice when you passionately believe in the outcome.”
— Dave Ramsey (Entre-leadership)
