Working together, we can change the world for single mom families.

Single moms are lonely, feel isolated and overwhelmed. Churches and organizations have the opportunity to change this by providing a single mom support group.

Single mom families are a growing segment of our population. They are women who’ve never been married and have been abandoned by the father. Some women find themselves as the head of their household as a result of divorce or the death of their spouse. Regardless of the circumstances that made them a single mom, starting a single mom support group that provides community gives them much-needed hope that people care.

How to start a single mom group

Not sure where to start? Hope for Single Moms has just the help you need to start a single mom support group at your church or organization or even in your home for your neighbors. Our How-to guide is available for FREE. Download now HSM-church-ministryCarla will meet with your start-up committee, if you would like, to help answer any questions. Hope for Single Moms also offers a workshop you may want to consider before your first work meeting.

 

Resources for your single mom group

Do you already host single moms? Whether you are a church or organization, we have two resources to take your single moms to the next level.

Our “Discover Your Career” curriculum can be done one-on-one with a mentor or in a small group. Your single moms will begin brainstorming possibilities. When they finish the ten lessons, they will have a clear path to their career goal. You will help move them from poverty to prosperity.

This is where Hope for Single Moms comes in. We will help them on their student parent journey. If they already have a mentor they work with, they can keep the same one. Or, Hope for Single Moms can provide a mentor if they would like one.

Hope for Single Moms also has a bible study entitled, “Why? for Single Moms.” This eight-week study presents the Gospel and gives participants several opportunities to accept salvation. Your moms will heal from the past and have hope for the future.

A FREE download of each resource is available. That way you can see if this will serve the needs of your group.

There is a suggested donation for each resource.  Simply indicate which resource you are interested in when you place your donation. Hope for Single Moms will email you the digital download. Once you have a resource, Hope for Single Moms will send you any updates we make.
