We are sisters, we shall succeed together. – Stacy Abott, Program Participant

In New York City, 41% of single mothers live in poverty, and they are nearly three times as likely to live in poverty as married families (American Community Survey, 2011-2015 5-Year Estimates). Poverty is especially acute among women in Brownsville, a neighborhood within Brooklyn, where nearly two-thirds (62%) of households are headed by a single mother (Roussine et al., 2016). Yet, women in Brooklyn with a Bachelor’s Degree earn more than twice that of women with a high school diploma or GED alone (American Community Survey, 2011-2015 5-Year Estimates). Additionally, despite 85% of Brownsville’s 5,700 children under five being eligible for EarlyLearn NYC (federally-subsidized childcare and Head start), there is capacity in the neighborhood for just 700. The need is great.

In 2016, Jeremiah Program responded to a call from three locally respected organizations in Brownsville, NY: Community Solutions, SCO Family of Services, and Medgar Evers College, who share a deep concern about the numerous barriers single mothers and their children face to achieving social and economic prosperity. Considering our initial joint assessment, these partners and we have set a goal of establishing a program in Brownsville, New York, where the aim will be to serve 20-30 families at a time. Our long-term vision is to replicate the Jeremiah Program model throughout New York City to serve a total of 1,000 families a time across all six boroughs, greatly increasing our current capacity for serving families in any Jeremiah community in the country.

Jeremiah is currently the only program in New York City to offer a comprehensive, integrated model of services for families headed by low-income single mothers. We are unique in that our two-generation approach puts the whole family in the center of our service model.

In August 2017, we started our first empowerment course for 10 single mothers enrolled at Medgar Evers College. In October, we hired our first family coach to help guide moms to resource referrals in the community, offer counseling in crisis management, and support families in educational goal setting.
