The commitment to annual giving recognizes that the need to empower single mom families is continual. 3 out of 4 single mom households are at significant risk of experiencing poverty, depression, children with behavioral and emotional issues, teen pregnancies, becoming victims of abuse, or desperately needing to acquire welfare.
These are invisible stressors that threaten our communities. However, our single moms are rising above these statistics.
We firmly believe that years from now we will have catalyzed a movement that assisted these moms and families eliminate many of the invisible stressors they carry, because we as a community have done something about it!
Single MOMM currently serves over 600 single mom families in the Greater Grand Traverse area. There are over 1600 families waiting to be served within our five county region. We need to expand our services.
To meet the needs of these families our annual funding must go from $242,000 to $404,000. This funding will allow us to deepen our career development pathways and residential program to more single moms in the Greater Grand Traverse area. It will also allow us to extend our mentoring and the reVIVE Course to the five county region.
SINGLE MOMM FINANCIAL STRUCTURE =
PRIVATE FUNDING + COMMUNITY INVESTMENT + SINGLE MOMS
We are a privately funded, community supported nonprofit that is run on a lean operating model. This has enabled us to provide maximum return on the community's giving while staying 100% focused on our mission and true to our core values.
