Mothers are dedicated to giving their children the best opportunity for a good life. How much harder is it for a mother to do so all on her own?
Single mothers are incredibly determined and resilient. They find a way, despite often overwhelming physical, emotional and financial challenges.
However, without some vital support at their times of greatest need, they can find themselves unable to provide basic needs for their children, including enough food, basic school supplies and even a safe home.
Council of Single Mothers and their Children provides essential support and assistance when these families need it the most.
Support our work by making a donation today. Every donation can make a real difference to a single mother family in need.
Let’s work together to build a society that values all families.
