Disrupt the cycle of poverty for single mothers and their children two generations at a time.
Moms are at the center of what JP does. We know that trauma and systemic and structural inequities are woven through their realities as women experiencing poverty. JP provides the necessary support for moms to begin the path out of poverty, but moms themselves are the best architects of the solutions to their families’ challenges. And we’re positioning JP moms to be those architects, impacting not only their families but also their communities.

JP’S INSIDE OUT STRATEGY
Commitment to Social Justice
JP supports 100% women, 100% single moms experiencing poverty, and 100% parents in pursuit of a college degree with 80% of those parents identifying as Black, Latinx and Indigenous. Higher education is not the solution for inequity in our country, but it remains the greatest lever of economic mobility.
Uncovering the Root
Generational poverty is a social justice issue, not an economic one. JP’s programming interrogates the roots of the racial and systemic inequalities impacting economic mobility and college entry for student parents, while also providing the support to help families complete college.
Refocusing the Conversation
Single moms experiencing poverty are, in fact, great moms. JP aims to disrupt entrenched stigmas about single mothers with new narratives. We do this by redistributing and building power by centering the voices and experiences of single moms. By changing the narrator, we change the narrative.
Expanding the Leadership Circle
Moms are experts of their lives. They are uniquely positioned to author solutions to the systemic and structural inequities that are woven through their realities as women experiencing poverty by leveraging movement-building frameworks that shift the power and policies impacting economic mobility.
