What We Do

Paid Maternity Leave is a non-profit that is looking to bridge the gap for maternity leave pay. Many mothers have to return to work within days of giving birth because they can not afford to lose the pay. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics claim that only 12% of working mothers get any form of maternity pay. These statistics have not changed much in over 50 years. A mother should not have to choose between tending her newborn or paying bills. We have heard a cry for help and agree that it must be answered.

This Begins in the Big Country Area!

There are approximately 2,800 births registered per year in Abilene. We plan to cover 3 months of maternity leave pay up to $2000/mo.

Who is Eligible?

Any soon-to-be mother or mother with a child less than 3 months old may apply online from anywhere in the Big Country counties.

The Selection Process

The applications will be categorized based on many factors including, but not limited to, disability, number of children, number of jobs, income level, expenses, physical health and mental health.

Maternity pay coverage will be evaluated on a monthly basis.
