Meet our courageous moms

Home > Meet our courageous moms

Single moms do it all alone. They drop their children off at daycare or school, go to work, pick their children up, make dinner, help with homework, tuck them in to bed, to do it all again the next day and the next. They are exhausted!!

After all that, nearly half are working minimum-wage jobs and are unable to pay all the bills. Hope for Single Moms uses a “teach-a-woman-to-fish” approach. With a better paying job, single moms can provide well for their children. With better food, children will grow better physically and do better academically. See graphs about poverty’s effects on children. We plan on working with these families a minimum of two years. Part of the program is helping them transition into the workforce.

Hope for Single Moms has four single moms on their student parent journeys. These women and their families need YOU to invest your time and resources to help her go back to school. By doing so you fight poverty and childhood hunger in single mom families.

Become part of one of our single mom success stories!

Meet our courageous student parents!

Brooke

Brooke and her son, Porter, age 6 months, just recently joined the Hope for Single Moms family. 

Brooke is taking pre-requisites to get into the dental hygiene program this summer. There is a waiting list to get accepted. Next fall and winter, she will be getting certified in dental assisting and will work in that field until she gets accepted into the hygiene program.

Brooke needs $4,000 for this summer. Thanks to a $2,000 donation from Meijer , she is halfway there.

Consider joining Brooke’s tribe. She has a long path ahead of her and will need a lot of love, encouragement and financial support. Click her link below.
