AboutThe Kids &Me

VISION

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.

MISSION

Our Mission is that through the power of the

Holy Spirit, The Kids & Me shall foster positive

relationships among Single Moms and minister to their needs.

THE REASON

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.
