(WXZ) — A local business that creates a sweet space of support for mothers is expanding its services and its reach.

Honey Space for Moms will now be working to help moms who've experienced domestic violence or homelessness get back on their feet.

After Angela Gill had her baby boy she was looking for help and a support system. She found it at Honey Space for Moms in Ferndale.

"I realized it takes a village really meant something," Gill said. "I just craved being others who understand what i was going through."

Honey Space was founded by Brooke Miller, a mom and psychotherapist. It's a co-working space for moms with on site child care coupled with mental health support.

"We just want to support all the things going on in moms' lives in the first several years of motherhood," Miller said.

And now Honey Space for Moms, which just expanded its space, is also expanding its reach. It has teamed up with the nonprofit Lighthouse whose "path" program in Pontiac helps moms who've experienced domestic violence or homelessness, get back on their feet.

Gill, who works at Lighthouse, helped form the new partnership.

They started a campaign to raise$100,000 by the end of the year. The money would help promote Honey's services to those women in the path program. Women dealing with so much outside of motherhood.

Mill says she's been wanting to reach more mothers, and this makes perfect sense.
