How can Hope for Single Moms help me go to school?
Thanks for checking out Hope for Single Moms. It’s hard to see the forest for the trees, isn’t it? Let us help you navigate the forest of parenting, working, going to school, studying and spending time with your child/ren.
First of all, you need a plan. What career goal do you have? If you’re not sure, you can schedule a FREE CONSULTATION CALL to brainstorm possibilities. If you belong to a single mom support group or have a mentor, you can work through our “Discover Your Career” curriculum.
Once you are accepted as a client of HSM, (see client qualifications below) we assess your financial needs and help you find the resources you need to get a career education. This is also covered in the “Discover” curriculum.
Hope for Single Moms raises a team of financial support, your Dream Team, to try and fill the gap left after all financial assistance elsewhere has been exhausted.
But it takes more than money to be successful. That is why we provide a network of support.
Education. Life Assistance. Community. Finances.
