The Jeremiah Program offers one of the nation’s most successful strategies for transforming families from poverty to prosperity two generations at a time. Our two-generation programming provides the support necessary for low-income single mothers and their children to move into a life of economic independence.
Professional coaches help women set educational goals, choose a career-track path, and get into and through their degree program. This individualized support promotes a culture of accountability and success.
On-site or partner early childhood centers provide the high-quality education and care that lays the crucial foundation for academic success, economic productivity, improved physical health, and avoidance of criminal behavior.
Jeremiah Program offers young mothers and their children safe and affordable housing or, with pilot projects, ensures that such housing is in place. The stability provided by this housing allows women to grow as parents, succeed as students, and prepare for career-track professions.
Empowerment is the catalyst for young women to change the direction of their lives. This required course promotes accountability and a deep understanding of how beliefs impact outcomes. As residents, women participate in weekly life skills training in career development, economic independence, physical and emotional health, and positive parenting.
The supportive community begins with the Jeremiah sisterhood; by taking this journey together the women grow in self-confidence and develop cooperative relationships. Dedicated volunteers extend women’s access to community resources and networks, resulting in expanded social capital for Jeremiah families.
