More than 2,300 single mothers are living in poverty in the Fargo-Moorhead area, a number that has increased 16% over the last six years. The majority of these mothers have children under the age of 4. Their unsafe, unstable housing and a lack of affordable, quality childcare create barriers to pursuing a college education that leads to career-track jobs.
Jeremiah Program’s newest campus opened to serve 20 low-income families in Fargo-Moorhead in January 2018. Thanks to a supportive community, single mothers and their children will have safe and affordable housing, spaces for empowerment and life skills training, support to pursue a career-track college education, and on-site quality early childhood education.
The holistic support Jeremiah provides promotes a culture of accountability and success, while adding well-trained, critically needed workers to the local Fargo-Moorhead economy and ensuring that children are ready for kindergarten.
As we prepared to break ground on our campus, we offered empowerment and life skills training for low-income women in our area.
Our new campus at 3104 Fiechtner Drive South in Fargo offers 20 affordable apartments, an on-site child development center, ample community space for empowerment and life skills classes, and spaces for residents and volunteers to gather, share a meal, study and socialize.
