Jeremiah Program


Jeremiah Program serves single moms and their children experiencing poverty in Boston, Massachusetts. 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.

About us

Jeremiah Program Boston

JP came to Boston in 2016 at the initial invitation of local partners, including Endicott College. Our innovative community model coordinates existing community resources for families through partnerships, while also offering JP’s unique program components for both moms and their children.

  • 206 moms and children participated in JP’s two-generation programing
  • 112 JP kids participated in summer enrichment opportunities 
  • 56 moms enrolled in college courses for the Spring and/or Fall 2023 semesters

Join us October 10 for our annual Voices Rising! This evening of storytelling, community, conversations, and cocktails will have JP mom voices take center stage

NBC Boston speaks with Boston alum Erika Rodriguez about the support she received from JP while attending college.

Endicott College student and JP Boston mom Arelismarid Flores discusses her college experience.

“My first year at Jeremiah, I reached my lowest point. I didn’t have much hope for my future. Working with my coach reminded me how strong I was. Now I’m inspired to be my daughter’s inspiration. There’s no other way but up from here.”

— Tiffany, JP Boston Mom
