Working together, we can change the lives of two generations

and change society for countless generations to come.

 

Single mom families are a growing segment of our population. Nearly two-thirds of single mom families do not have a church home. This is a wonderful opportunity to outreach the community around your church and touch these families with the love of Christ.

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. Our How-to template 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.

Already have a support group? 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 a where Hope for Single Moms comes in. We will help them walk the educational journey. If you have assigned them a mentor, they can keep the same one. Or, Hope for Single Moms can provide a mentor.

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.

Both resources have their own tab under the churches/org category. 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 based on feedback we get.
