​    is to remove the barriers single moms encounter when pursuing a 

     career education , like living and daycare expenses, and


     to provide a network of academic, financial and spiritual support to

     help them succeed in school and reach their fullest potential. 

 ​  Our goal 

​  

is to fight poverty and childhood hunger in single mom families,

as we give single moms a hand up with a career education.

      ​​We lift them out of poverty. 

     Higher (career) education allows the mother to reach her full potential,   

     provides her with  job opportunities 
     resulting in financial self-sufficiency and removes the family from public assistance!​ 

     It gives her children the nutrition they need to focus on school and achieve their

     dream of college.

   Our mission

​Most single moms work a minimum wage job. Childhood hunger or food insecurity effects

one in five families overall, but

HALF of female-headed households.

The impact on the children is huge! 
     

There is a direct correlation between poverty and a child’s educational achievement!


With better nutrition,

children do better in school!

This increases their chances of getting into college.
