Single mom families are a growing segment of our population. Nearly half of single mom families live in poverty, their children are hungry and M-STEP scores prove they are unable to focus in school.
We give assistance for living and childcare expenses so that single moms can attain an education and ﬁnd suitable jobs to best support their families. We also provide academic, ﬁnancial, and spiritual support.
With the help of donors and volunteers, we are able to provide childcare, ﬁnancial assistance, spiritual support, tutors, mentoring, and more. Become a supporter today!
