Volunteers encourage our single moms

and help them write their Cinderella story!

They change the lives of TWO generations

and impact society for countless generations to come!


  • Hope for Single Moms has no paid staff. We depend on our volunteers like you. Wondering what volunteering looks like. Any way you want. Watch video.
  • There would be no mentors! Mentors double the likelihood that a single mom will finish school. Single moms would be left to navigate life and school and parenting on their own.
  • There would be no “second families.” Many single moms do not have support from their parents, siblings, or extended families. Become part of a life assistance team with one or two or several small groups at your church.
  • Discouragement, loneliness and hopelessness sets in. We all need encouragement, community and hope. Your volunteering increases the number of families served, and therefore, increases the impact we can have in changing West Michigan!

WITH YOU, single moms have HOPE.

HOPE for their future. HOPE for their children’s futures.
