AboutThe Kids &Me
Our Vision is that through the power of the Holy Spirit,
The Kids & Me shall make a positive difference in the lives
of single moms and their children.
Our Mission is to foster positive relationships among Single Moms, to advocate on their behalf, and to address their family needs
As of 2018, America had over 15 million single moms raising over 22 million of America's youth. Said another way, 1 of every 4 parents is unmarried and 1 of every 5 children lives with a single mom. Single parent households frequently experience poverty and 40% of single parents are employed in low-wage jobs and often have no access to paid leave. Childcare costs can be more than half a single mom's income annually. These burdens compel us to come alongside a single mom to support her in this journey of raising her children.
