Jeremiah Program


Jeremiah Program serves single moms and their children experiencing poverty in Baltimore, Maryland. Our mission is to disrupt the cycle of poverty for single mothers and their children, two generations at a time. JP believes that no mother should have to choose between investing in herself and her children.

“I didn’t know you could have a balanced life: you can go to school, you can go to work, and then you can also parent. But coming here, being a part of the JP program, I learned that you can have a balance.”
