To fight poverty and childhood hunger in single mom families, as we give single moms a hand up with a career education.
To remove the financial barriers single moms encounter when pursuing a career education, mainly living and daycare expenses, (and to provide a network of academic, financial and spiritual support to help them succeed in school and reach their fullest potential.)
We lift them out of poverty.
Higher (career) education allows the mother to reach her full potential, provides her with job opportunities resulting in financial self-sufficiency and removes the family from public assistance!
(It gives her children the nutrition they need to focus on school and achieve their dream of college.)

By helping pay for living and daycare expenses, we make up for the loss of income (from her job while in school) and the loss of child support during school time.
