Jeremiah Program envisions a world where single mothers and their children prosper.
You’re already a great mom. Become a JP mom too.
You don’t have to choose between investing in yourself and investing in your children. At JP, we partner with you for your whole family's success.
Jeremiah Program aims to disrupt the cycle of poverty for single mothers and their children, two generations at a time.
At JP, we know that single mothers are the experts on their own lives, and the best architects of their own, and their children’s, journeys.
A college education is a key to higher earnings, steady employment, and financial security. It also models for kids what’s possible, and makes it more likely that they will have a secure financial future.
You are already a great role model for your kids, and you can model college success too. But you don’t have to do it alone.
JP offers a sisterhood-community of local single moms, and will work with you to complete you education, launch your career, and care for your children’s education and development.
