Jeremiah Program Austin cut the ribbon on a beautiful new campus on Monday, March 6. The campus will provide 35 determined single mothers and their young children with safe and affordable housing, on-site early childhood education, and an environment that supports young women in earning a career-track, college education.
Guest speakers at the ribbon cutting included Congressman Lloyd Doggett, U.S. House of Representatives; Sabino “Pio” Renteria, City Council Member, District 3; Michael J. O’Connell, Jeremiah Program Visionary Founder; and Representative Eddie Rodriguez, Texas House of Representatives.
Libby Doggett, former Deputy Assistant Secretary for Policy and Early Learning at the U.S. Department of Education and a strategic change leader for early learning, also spoke, sharing these words: “Jeremiah Program, with operations in Austin and three other cities and several more in the pipeline, is at the forefront of a movement to provide solutions for single mothers and their children together. The organization’s bold two-gen approach breaks the cycle of poverty by moving families into an intergenerational cycle of opportunity. Jeremiah Program sees families as resilient and creative, and provides a place and platform for their economic security and educational success.”
