Congratulations to our JP families and team! 2019 was a year filled with success
Jeremiah Program mothers and their children just completed another terrific year. At Jeremiah Program, we work to fulfill the promise of a world where single mothers and their children prosper. The vast majority of our single mother participants are between the ages of 18-25, and 78% are from communities of color. With the help of our volunteers, community partners, and supporters, we’re making great progress.
