About Jeremiah Program

Little child

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.

Jeremiah Program is headquartered in Minneapolis. The organization has two fully operational sites—in Minneapolis and St. Paul. Housing for four families opened in Austin, TX, in fall 2013, and construction is underway on an expanded campus that will welcome 35 additional families in early 2017. Leaders in Fargo, ND–Moorhead, MN, will break ground in spring 2017 on a campus to serve 20 families, and pilot programs are underway with Endicott College in Boston.
