Jeremiah Program offers one of the nation’s most successful strategies for transforming families from poverty to prosperity two generations at a time. Jeremiah prepares determined single mothers to excel in the workforce, readies their children to succeed in school, and reduces generational dependence on public assistance.
Jeremiah’s proven, holistic approach begins with establishing a supportive community for determined single mothers to pursue a career-track, college education. Through a combination of quality early childhood education, a safe and affordable place to live, and empowerment and life skills training, families find stability and a path out of poverty.
Headquartered in Minneapolis, MN, Jeremiah Program is expanding throughout the country to meet the growing demand for its model. The organization has campuses in Minneapolis and St. Paul, MN, and Austin, TX. Construction is set to begin on a campus in Fargo, ND–Moorhead, MN, in summer 2017. In Boston, Jeremiah has introduced an innovative model, working with leading organizations to serve mothers and children. In addition, community leaders in Rochester, MN, Brownsville, NY, and Charlottesville, VA, are developing plans to bring Jeremiah to the area.
