HOPE FOR SINGLE MOMS
Fighting Poverty and Childhood Hunger in Single Mom Families with a Career Education
To fight poverty and childhood hunger in single mom families by removing the barriers single moms have to getting a career education.
We all want children to thrive. But for nearly half of the children of single mom families, that isn’t going to happen. Their children are hungry and can’t focus in school. With a better paying job, single moms can provide well for their children. With better food, children will grow better physically and do better academically. Learn more.
Our goal is to remove the barriers single moms have to returning to school to get a career education. One barrier is knowing what programs are available. Another is the loss of wages. And still another, the need for encouragement.
We provide free consultations for any single mom who calls. even if Hope for Single Moms doesn’t support her as a client. Our consultations include possible career choices, type of schooling and financial aid available. Click for client qualifications. Click for program info.
