There are more than 15,000 single mother families in Austinwith 40,000 children under the age of 18. They face significant barriers to breaking the cycle of poverty for their family due to the lack of higher education for the mothers, safe affordable housing for the family and quality early childhood education for these vulnerable children.
We need your help to build a Jeremiah community that enables single mothers to realize their dreams of self-reliance — a community that rewards hard work and determination with the support and guidance it takes to get a college degree, secure career-track employment and end reliance on public assistance.
The preschool-aged children, many of whom sufer from the effects of living in poverty, will receive high-quality, on-site early childhood education that prepares them for success in kindergarten. Jeremiah Program provides an environment for mothers to model behavior that encourages growth, empowerment and the power of education.
Investing in single mothers and their children yields a return for us all. You can affect change for multiple generations and prepare educated women for the future workforce of Austin.
