Mothers of Joy University, LLC was established in 2016 by founder and Executive Director Shearese Stapleton. This organization was designed to provide programs to help families to embrace the parenting journey. The way this has been accomplished is by becoming aware of the needs of parents and the stressors that can come with the job of nurturing children affected by the Water Crisis and now COVID-19. Several studies have shown that some children living in poverty have lower cognitive and academic readiness. And due to traumatic situations, Children score low on cognitive measures of development. MJU, LLC has adopted a Trauma-informed approach to parenting, called Trauma-informed parenting practice (T.I.P.P).
