Thank you donors! Without you, Hope for Single Moms wouldn’t exist.

We are about creating opportunities, where otherwise there are none.

For every $1 donated, there’s a potential $4 ROI —
due to decreased dependence on social services and increased taxes paid.

We all want children to thrive, don’t we?  But for nearly half of the children in single mom families, that isn’t going to happen. They live in poverty and don’t get enough food. When children are hungry they can’t focus in school. With your donation, you can change that.

However, childhood hunger affects children even before they go to school. A lack of good nutrition means they don’t develop the skills necessary to do well in school. Many of our moms come to us when they first find out they’re pregnant. With your monthly donation, you can start these children off right. When single moms get a career education, they can get a better-paying job. This means she will be able to buy better food and enough food for her family.

When a child grows well physically and does better academically, it increases the chances that he/she will go to college or trade school. Because of donors like you, these families can break the cycle of poverty  many find themself in.

Hope for Single Moms is grateful for the organizations that help our families immediate food needs. This is vital as we journey with them over the course of several years to achieve financial stability.

These graphs show the effects of poor nutrition, due to poverty, on a child’s basic foundational skills (left) and impact on academic achievement in school (right).

Poor nutrition early in life means delayed development of foundational skills. These skills are so important to success in school. Children living in poverty start school behind their peers.

When children are hungry, they focus on food, not on school. There is a direct correlation between academic achievement and poverty.
