Aunty Ruth Walker established MiiMi Mothers in the late 1980's when she realised there was no support or help for Aboriginal women and families in Bowraville.
Aunty Ruth and her sister Florence Ballangarry with foresight, passion and energy joined forces and encouraged the community to realise their dream of developing programs and bringing services into the community for women and their families. Funding has enabled the development of the MiiMi House from which MiiMi manages and delivers projects.
MiiMi incorporated in 1993. The organisation is recognised as an Aboriginal Corporation and is governed by a board of management. Although MiiMi is an Aboriginal Corporation the Board of Management recognises the need for services for the WHOLE of community and all MiiMi programs are for both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal women and their families.
MiiMi changed its name from MiiMi Mother's Aboriginal Corporation to MiiMi Aboriginal Corporation in 2010. Mother's was dropped as MiiMi means Mother in Gumbaynggirr Language.
In 2011 MiiMi was successful in achieving the Deductable Gift Recipient (DGR) status.
