Chia and Friends is a 3-way partnership between Chia and Friends, single moms and The Church.


WHY:  Single mom families are a growing segment of our population.

             Nearly 2/3 of single mom families do not go to church. This is a large mission field.

             Nearly of single mom families live in poverty or below poverty.

             Through the venue of a career education, we develop a relationship with them. By helping them have a better life here, we can also impact their eternal life by sharing the

             Gospel.


HOW:We believe every family should thrive and all of society benefits when everyone contributes.

              Single moms get child support for daycare while they work -- but not while they are in school.

              We address this issue, the cycle of poverty it creates and the subsequent impact of poverty on the next generation.
              We know children living in poverty do poorly in school because they focus on food when they don't get good nutrition.

              We focus on giving single moms an opportunity to thrive with a career education. This provides better nutrition for the children. 

              They also have hope for eternity with our spiritual mentoring.


WHAT: By helping pay for living and daycare expenses, we make up for the loss of income (from her job while in school) and the loss of child support during school time

               so she can go back to school, get a better job and better provide for her family. She becomes financially self-sufficient.

               With better nutrition, her children thrive.  We build a better society for our children and grandchildren.

               By helping her understand who she is as a child of God and what God says about her as His child, she will grow in her Christian walk.



OUR FOCUS:  EDUCATION.  COMMUNITY.  LIFE  ASSISTANCE.   MENTORING.
