Jeremiah Program


Jeremiah Program’s unique and nationally recognized programming provides the support necessary for low-income single mothers and their children to move beyond poverty and into a life of economic independence. By stabilizing one family at a time, Jeremiah Program educates two generations, builds social capital and works to end the need for public assistance.

Our programming includes a rare combination of safe and affordable housing, quality early childhood education, empowerment and life skills training, high standards for pursuit of post-secondary education, and support for career-track employment.

Evaluation procedures are in place at every step in the family’s journey to ensure appropriate progress and achievement of success, and to measure the lasting impact of the Jeremiah model.
