Hope for Single Moms is on a mission to ensure children in single mom families thrive. And we hope you will join us!
It happens with donors and volunteers removing the barriers single moms have to getting a career education.
Nearly half of the children in single mom families live at or below the poverty line. Hungry children can’t focus on school. Poverty and hunger solutions are complex. There is no quick solution.
Hope for Single Moms uses a teach-a-woman-to-fish approach. What that means is helping a woman get the education she needs to provide well for her children. And hopefully, reach her full potential. Getting a career education will double a single mom’s lifetime earnings. Well-fed children grow well physically and do well academically breaking the cycle of poverty.
Many single moms work multiple minimum-wage jobs, which doesn’t pay the bills. It also means they’re not home evenings. When a mom is able to work during normal business hours, she can be home in the evening preparing meals and helping with homework. She is home on weekends and we encourage our families to have fun together.
