When women support each other, incredible things happen​

Why We Do What We Do: 

"Becoming a mother is the hardest job in the world, even if you have everything. Imagine if you had nothing."

 ~ Danielle Krupa


Our Team: 

Danielle Krupa, Founder & Executive Director

Raised by a single mother that worked 3 jobs while simultaneously putting herself through school, Danielle Krupa experienced firsthand the hardship a mother faces when she doesn’t have financial security. This served as her inspiration in starting Moms for Moms once she became a mother herself. And it continues to serve as her motivation in providing new and expecting mothers the critical items needed most after childbirth.


Danielle lives in NYC with her husband and 2 daughters. She holds a B.S. in Human Development and Family Relations from the University of Connecticut and an M.A. in Psychology from The City University of New York. Prior to establishing Moms for Moms, she worked in healthcare research at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and Weill Cornell Medical College, and more recently as a culinary professional specializing in health & wellness.

Susan Miller, Program Distribution Director

Susan is a lifelong New Yorker, born and raised in Brooklyn.  She holds a J.D. and M.P.H. from Columbia University and has spent the past fifteen years of her career working in New York City's not-for-profit sector in legal, policy and volunteer positions focusing on public health.


Mara Holmgren, Program Director

Mara Holmgren is a mother and entrepreneur who worked in the fashion industry in New York City for 15 years before taking time off to raise her two young daughters. Community service has been a driving force for her from working at soup kitchens as a young adult to activist counseling for moms groups during the pandemic. Helping ease the acute needs and stress of new motherhood for others has been an imperative call.

Chris Anderson, Marketing Director

After life in the suburbs raising her four children, Chris returned to NYC six years ago thrilled to be re-immersed in the wonderful chaos of city life where a simple walk around the block can yield an abundance of stories. After a career supporting nonprofits and small businesses develop and share their stories, Chris is honored to be working with Moms for Moms as they bring their inspiring mission to life.
