2022 was a time of incredible growth for our Minneapolis and St. Paul campuses. We celebrated ten amazing women as they graduated with their post-secondary degrees. Twentyfour moms participated in our new Career Volunteer Mentor Program, and nearly 50 kids participated in high-quality summer enrichment opportunities to further support their educational development — increasing the chances of economic mobility for both generations.

“To be able to go back and go to college, surrounded by all these women that were on the same journey … it was just a phenomenal experience. That was the first time I ever felt safe in my life. I think I spent the first year just looking around me, looking at my kids and my furniture, and the fact that I was in my home and I was safe. To have that space, that mental and physical space, allowed me to grow tremendously.”Christine, Minneapolis alum
IN 2022, moms engaged in 2,500+ family coaching sessions supporting their college persistence and family stability.
49 KIDS BENEFITED FROM HIGH-QUALITY SUMMER ENRICHMENT PROGRAMS AND EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT LAST YEAR.
Become a JP Mom and become a part of a network of mothers in Minneapolis creating a better future for themselves and their children.
The impacts of generational poverty and systemic racism can be disrupted two generations at a time by investing both in a mother’s vision for her future and the education of her children.
