Jeremiah Program is a national organization with a mission to disrupt the cycle of poverty for single mothers and their children, two generations at a time. 

Our work

Pillars of Disrupting Poverty

We believe that no mother should have to make the untenable choice between investing in herself and her children. Our holistic approach allows families to dream what is possible when they are able to bring all of their identities to bear in pursuit of their goals. 


JP has worked with families across the country for the past 25 years, supporting them on their paths to economic mobility. 

Delivering on our misson

Do. Foster. Influence.

We are building upon our learning of the past 25 years, honoring our successes while remaining agile and responsive to evolving needs. At JP, we recognize that economic mobility is not a sprint but a marathon. We believe this commitment requires that we Do. Foster. Influence
