Yo Mama’s House

Yo Mama’s House is the work of Amoke Kubat who is an important cultural anchor for the Twin Cities (Minneapolis/St. Paul). Its services foster social bonds among mothers of wide-ranging ages, backgrounds, and cultural communities by using artmaking and healing practices. Although its public events are offered throughout the area, Yo Mama’s House primarily serves the African American community of North Minneapolis. AmbitioUS is providing a one-year grant to support Yo Mama’s House’s mortgage payments and property taxes to continue to support their work of providing arts and healing to mothers in the North Minneapolis region, a community facing gentrification.
