We depend on churches and businesses to cover everything from meals to guest speakers to kid's activities to supplies. These sponsor know the value of giving single moms a night "off duty," free childcare programs, meals, encouraging speakers, an environment they feel seen and loved in. They understand that these Event Nights open "doors" for single moms to embrace so much more - our ongoing mentorship, the reVIVE Course, resource networking residential programs, and much more. 

Our Event Night Sponsors come from all over our local community. Businesses and churches sponsor through financial, gift-in-kind, and/or volunteer service. Each sponsor selects a month or multiple months to sponsor and receive community recognition. 


Event Nights are 100% funded by our local community. Everything from the general financial cost to the meals, from the kid’s activities to the speakers are possible through the generosity of our sponsors.

448 volunteers made our Event Nights possible last year. Along with our staff and lead volunteers these community members came alongside and assisted us in providing help with our meals, set-up, tear-down, and participated in our kid activities. Whether once a year or once every month, volunteering at an Event Night can bring a smile to a child’s face, allow you to see the heart of what we do, and bring a sense of hope to single mom’s working hard to provide for their families.


In recognition of your sponsorship we extend an invitation to have your logo on our annual advertising poster (all sponsorships for this must be in by September 1st). We also recognize our monthly sponsors at the Event Nights through verbal thanks and an electronic advertising board. Our sponsors are also recognized on social media leading up to and after their sponsored Event Night.

When single moms know they are supported by their community, their confidences increases. 

In addition to receiving community recognition, you receive an incredible social return. Through our Event Nights single moms enter into deeper relationships with us. The Event opens the door for them to begin one-on-one mentoring, entrance into our reVIVE course, help with resource networking, and other small group opportunities.

Our single moms are shattering negative statistics that have haunted single mom families over the years!

It has really opened the eyes of our congregation to the reality of single motherhood and the challenges so many moms and children have. We often stay in our bubble and don’t want to acknowledge the hurt that exists. We think Traverse City is some sort of utopia where everyone is doing well. Our church has no only become aware but wants to help these women and their children feel confident, capable, and loved.
